Thank you for checking out this navigational document. If you have no yet seen or heard about the Student Resources & Services List (or if you would just like a quick refresher on how to use it), then scroll on through!
Purpose of the Student Resources/Services List:
If you are a new student at City College of San Francisco - or even a continuing student, it may be a bit challenging finding the resources you need to help support you throughout your semesters. The purpose of having this list is to provide students with a quick, accessible, and user-friendly platform to check out and explore the resources on campus. The resources found on this list can vary from where to find free nutritional snacks on campus, to specific open labs to help you with certain courses.
Please note that when accessing the CCSF Site or the Student Resources/Services List, Google Chrome or Firefox may be the best browser to utilize
Locating the Resource List
[Steps 1-3: For finding the Student Completion & Resources Site]

2. Document Last Updated: The student list gets updated frequently depending upon changing office hours or information throughout the semester. This specific feature allows students to know when the list was last updated and can use it accordingly to the changes.
3. Table Shortcuts: It is no surprise that CCSF has over 100+ services and resources to support students. Looking at the list can be a little overwhelming, however by using these keyboard shortcuts (depending upon what technology platform you are using), finding key words can help quicken the search. When you follow the keyboard shortcut, another small box will pop up, allowing you to type in words or phrases you are interested in looking for (ex. "health", "counseling", "library", etc.). Shortcuts can be used on any page of the resource document. It is accessible to use with Mac laptops/computers as well as PCs. Other platforms may have a search capability as well.
4. Tab Descriptions: On the tab descriptions, the various categories of the resource list is described and it explains what you are able to find under each specific tabs. The resources and services on the list is categorized under seven tabs: Student Services, Academic Support, Health/Safety, Finances, Technology, Resource Centers, and CCSF Centers/Campuses.
5. Tabs: As described in the previous component, this is where you are able to click on the tabs. When you click on the different categories, it will direct you to the resources and services that are sorted under that category. If you look back to the main list, you will see that the resources are color coordinated based on what tab you will find them under.
Now, we will go over navigating tabs. Once you click on any of the seven tabs, you will see the same features that are discussed here. For the purpose of this explanation, we will use Academic Counseling: Conlan Hall & Centers as the main example.
Layout and components of each tab
1. Service/Resource Name: On this column, while scrolling down, you are able to see the names of the service or resource housed under specific tabs. The example picture above is the Student Services tab.
2. Information: A brief description of what the service or resource offers. If it is a resource center, the description will also list the services it provides for students.
3. Site Link: This column is where you will be directly linked to the service/resource's site section on the CCSF web page. Once you click on the box labeled "Site Link", another thin rectangular box will pop up - from there, you will click on the link and the website will pop up.
4. Location/Hours: For each resource or service there will be information on the location and operating hours. There may be some resources that do not have hours, or some may be an online source with no physical office location. These hours are updated every semester to reflect any updates.
5. Contact Information: If you need to reach out to a particular resource center, contact information is provided. For some services an appointment is required, this will be indicated.
6. Additional Resource: For some resources or services there may be upcoming events or important news. You will find this on the farthest left hand column.
