Welcome to the CSUN Sandbox Environment.

The CSUN Sandbox Environment provides students, faculty, and units with a flexible environment to deliver, to deploy, to develop, to pilot, to prototype, or to just play with new technology. This technology could be used to support your class curriculum, to support your research, to engage students in exploratory activities, or other activities in which are you interested.

This environment is maintained and supported by the our students in the CIT (Computer Information Technology) and Computer Science programs, under the supervision and mentorship of the Advanced Technology Lab. Although this is not a production environment and we can NOT provide a guaranteed level of service, we provide best effort support with the goal of providing exceptional support.

To get a better understanding of the possibilities and to learn how others are using the sandbox environment, feel free to peruse the list of projects and activities being supported. For more information, please send us an email at info@sandbox.csun.edu.

Office Technology Management

As an experiment, we are providing IT support to the Office of Research and Graduate Studies (RGS). Student are responsible for managing the office IT equipment (desktop computers, laptops, printers, etc), for providing user/application support, and for coordinating with IT groups that provide infrastructure support.
