Welcome to the Computer Technology Center (CTC) in Aptos



The Computer Technology Center (CTC) is a computer lab offering computers, printers, scanners & copiers for any currently-enrolled Cabrillo student.

The Computer Technology Center (CTC) is a large computer lab/study spot for registered Cabrillo students who are trying achieve their student goals. The CTC is open 6 days a week (including evening hours!) during the fall/spring semesters, and is open six weeks in summer. We have Peer Tech Coaches (Teaching Assistants) at all times to help with labs/homework.

The CTC is located in the 1400 building on lower campus (by Parking Lot M) just beyond the Cabrillo Theater. The lab consists of approximately 100 computers, Macs as well as PCs, printers, scanners, copiers, staplers, a paper cutter and a Computer History Museum. You can check out library items at our Front Desk: books, USB drives, phone/iPad chargers, Wacom Tablets, wrist pads, book stands, headphones, WIFI and study areas are available too.

The layout of the CTC includes configurations for different student needs: Macs specifically loaded with software for Digital Media, areas for laptop use, PCs located within a "Quiet Area," a collaborative study area in room 1402, and a tutoring or "group room" for students working together. We also have a bank of computers that are configured specifically for STEM applications. There is a large "food table" where you can bring your lunch and discuss with friends your projects, day's events and ideas about the future. Eating is allowed anywhere in the CTC.

If you haven't had a chance to check us out, come down to lower campus to see what the CTC has to offer! We are a clean, safe place to study!
