Welcome to CS Support’s Documentation!

Please familiarize yourself with the Acceptable Use Policy to understand expectations when using department resources.

At the Computer Science department we are committed to the same level of accessibility as is laid out in Western’s “Our Commitment to Accessibility”:

VPN Access

To access any system in the CS Department, users will need to authenticate either via the WWU VPN or the CSCI VPN. This includes access to GitLab.
Instructions can be found on our Access pages.

Technical Assistance

If you need assistance with accessing a resource or utilizing a tool for a class, please reach out to your TA first. In addition (and especially if your course doesn’t utilize a TA) please reach out to your instructor. If you need assistance with a resource for a faculty-mentored research project, please contact the faculty member first.
