About IT Services

Learn about Information Technology Services at UC San Diego.

Information Technology Services is UC San Diego’s central IT organization, providing information technology services to support business systems, messaging and collaboration, information security, campus infrastructure, educational technology and researcher needs.


Through world-class services and technologies, Information Technology Services empowers UC San Diego's mission to transform California and the world by supporting its efforts as a student-centered, research-focused, service-oriented public university.


As a strategic member of the UC San Diego community, Information Technology Services delivers innovative IT services, infrastructure, applications, and support. We are customer focused and committed to collaboration, continual improvement, and accountability.


Information Technology Services brings together three former entities:

  • Academic Computing & Media Services (ACMS)
  • Administrative Computing and Technology (ACT)
  • Integrated Digital Infrastructure (IDI)

This change was made as a result of an external review of UC San Diego's IT infrastructure and extensive feedback from internal stakeholders, including students, faculty, researchers, and staff.
