Cascadia College's Information Services Department acquires, develops and maintains technologies to help students, faculty and staff at Cascadia achieve success.

Cascadia is committed to ensuring that it maintains its foothold in equipping the campus with advanced technology. Cascadia students have access to computers with either Windows 10 or Macintosh OS X (Big Sur) operating systems in classrooms, the Learning Center and breakout areas throughout campus.  Software applications that are available for use include Microsoft Office 2019, Adobe Creative Cloud,  and Autodesk Design Suite.  Many of these software applications are also available from off campus via the Views offered to both students and employees from any web browser on any personal device.

The student computers on campus are on a staggered 4-year replacement schedule which is primarily funded by a student-approved technology fee. The operating systems and core applications are upgraded on a regular basis to keep students up-to-date with the software used in the business world and in Cascadia classes.

Cascadia classrooms are equipped with ePodiums enabling instructors to enhance the classroom experience with multimedia presentations.  All classrooms have in room Assistive Listening Systems, with the newest rooms being furnished with the latest Seinnheiser MobileConnect system that allows students to use their own personal devices to stream classroom lectures.

The Information Services Helpdesk offers an extensive list of technology related services including Mac based video editing stations, technology assistance and equipment check-out (laptops, tablets and audio-video equipment) for students and employees.
