New CCR Help Desk for 2016!

The new CCR Help Desk Portal includes a robust and constantly updated knowledge base containing solutions to the most frequently asked questions.  The portal provides users with a platform for self-help 24 hours/day.  Users can also check the status of their pending help requests as well as look back on previous help requests they’ve submitted. 

Contact CCR Help:

The fastest way to receive technical assistance from our team of system administrators and computational scientists is to submit a ticket through the CCR Help Desk Portal.  Alternatively, you can send an email to CCR Help ( which will generate a ticket in our work order system.  Urgent requests sent during regular business hours (Monday-Friday 8am-5pm) are often able to be handled within several hours. One of our staff members will respond within 3 business days to requests for software installations and other non-urgent matters. Our staff rotates through an on-call schedule for weekends and non-business hours to handle emergency service outages only. 

If you email a staff member directly, please keep in mind they may be out of the office, on vacation, or not on-call and may not see your request immediately.  Therefore, we highly recommend submitting a ticket through our help desk portal and the first available staff member will respond.  We make every effort to provide you with assistance in a timely manner.
