We want to make your life as stress-free as possible when it comes to your computer, and so we offer a lot of services here for you. Some of the most important ones for students are:

CIT Help Desk

The CIT Help Desk is located on the main level of Mudd Center in the Academic Commons. Look for the "Information" sign in the center of the Commons to find us. The Help Desk is the place to go if you need to reset your ObieID password. This is also the place to go if you have hardware problems or trouble with software on your computer.

Electronic Computer Services at Oberlin


Your ObieID is your main Oberlin College account. It is used to access most online services at Oberlin College, including OCMail, Blackboard, OnCampus, personal websites, group websites, VPN, lab computers and certain software.


OCMail is Oberlin College's e-mail service, powered by Google Apps for Education. It is similar to Google's GMail product, but has been customized for Oberlin.
