Helpdesk has moved to room 525

The CLC main office is in room 525 and our hours are: 

Monday - Thursday  8:30 AM - 6PM
Friday 8:30 AM - 5 PM

When you have a question or need help, please email us at HELPDESK. HELPDESK is your main link to computer support. When your message is received, one of our Customer Service staff members will respond to you at their earliest convenience. If your email is inaccessible, you can also reach us by dialing 6-5300 or stopping by room 525. 



WHY:  Chicago-Kent currently has a technology-challenged infrastructure difficult to support and expensive to expand. In particular, our existing e-mail system ExpressIT provides multiple points for failure. The  migration process will address these issues by implementing a new platform with the capability to support industry standard applications and e-mail messaging system.  

WHEN:  Thursday, June 29 – Wednesday, July 5, 2000
( Please note that in the event the migration is postponed, all staff, faculty and students will be notified accordingly with new dates.)


  • Any and all onsite network connectivity as related to file/print resources and e-mail access will not be available during the days allotted for the migration.

  • Any and all incoming and outgoing e-mail traffic will also be interrupted during the duration of the migration.

  • Any and all remote dial-in access to Profnet and Kentnet via DialKent  will cease.  Please be advised that all users of DialKent will need to have their own ISP (Internet Service Provider) to accommodate remote file access.

 So what does this mean?

  • Windows 2000 offers a network operating system that will provide enhanced performance for file and printer resources.

  • The migration from ExpressIt to Microsoft Exchange/Microsoft Outlook provides a messaging system which is more reliable and standardized.

MS Outlook Training…when and where?

  • All faculty, staff and students will be notified regarding available training resources and schedules.

FYI: Network Maintenance

Regular general maintenance of the network is necessary to ensure greater performance, both in terms of speed and the prevention of any serious problems. To achieve these goals, the Center for Law and Computers will periodically take down the network to perform this maintenance. We've scheduled the maintenance on a monthly basis, for only 1.5 hours on days and at times to inconvenience the least amount of users. On these days, the network will not be available between 5:30am and 7:00am.
