IT Building & Data Center

The IT Building and Data Center is located on the south side of the Chula Vista campus in building 23. The building houses the offices of Institutional Technology and Institutional Research & Planning. It includes a smart classroom lab and two small conference rooms dedicated to both offices for training and collaboration.

Aside from being sustainable and conducive to net-zero energy with roof mounted solar panels, the building is equipped with upgraded network core switching, dedicated emergency generator, redundant fiber connectivity, redundant HVAC, and UPS.

The IT Building and Data Center was designed with state of the art digital and network capabilities to create more technological access and resources for a better learning experience. Due to the highly sensitive and expensive equipment housed in the building, it is secured, and access is limited to authorized personnel. Please contact the Institutional Technology or Institutional Research & Planning office to gain access to the building prior to your visit.
