Applying for CCSF Network and GroupWise Email Accounts

All CCSF employees can receive a CCSF Network login and a GroupWise email account. Fill out the form entitled Request for CCSF network Login and GroupWise Email. You should have received one from Human Resources when you processed your hiring paperwork. You may also get one from the Help Desk (239-3711), from the Faculty/Staff Lab in Batmale 313, or by calling or visiting Ana Soto in ITS, Batmale 130, 239-3534.



Faculty who wish to use CCSFmail (powered by Google), may apply for an account. Sign up on the MyCCSF page or go directly to:

CCSF Network Account

The CCSF Windows Network
[What's a network? Check out the article, "An Educator's Guide to School Networks"]

When you login to your account, you get:

  • Safe storage: Any file that you save to either your desktop or your My Documents folder can only be accessed by you under your login on that computer. Of course, you have to log off when you leave a shared computer to keep  your data private. And the files are only available on that computer.
  • Access to your own network drive: In My Computer under network drives, you'll see a drive with your login name on it. This provides 100 MB of space on the server that you can access from any CCSF computer on the network. So, you can save files on your network drive at Chinatown, and call them up when you login at your desk on the SouthEast campus.

Logins and passwords

When you get an account on the CCSF Windows network, you can use your login on any Faculty or Staff computer at any of the networked CCSF campuses. The login is the same as the one you use for GroupWise email and your initial password is also the same.

However, the network and Groupwise passwords are not connected. You will be required to change your network password the first time you login to the network. When you do so, it will be different from the GroupWise password.

WiFi at CCSF

CCSF WiFi Account
