The Beacon's back!

The Beacon Café, North Shore Community College’s student-run café, will be serving fresh, hot meals on Tuesdays and Thursdays beginning October 15th through December 10th. The café will be closed Thursday, November 28 in observance of Thanksgiving.

IMPORTANT! Changes to Helpdesk Phone Support...

Beginning on Tuesday, September 24th the Helpdesk is making a change to the way phone support is handled.  Starting tomorrow, when a user calls the Helpdesk (x4167) they will hear a message asking them to press #1 for account access questions and to press #2 for all other Helpdesk questions.

Password, portal and computer access questions will be directed to a select group of specially trained computer lab employees.  The hope is that we can resolve problems more quickly and free up full-time staff to handle the more complex issues that come our way.  Additionally, the computer lab staff will be available until 9PM Monday – Thursday.  We hope that these new, extended hours will better serve the NSCC community.

Please be aware that computer lab staff have been trained, at least initially, only to help with password and basic access problems, such as locked accounts.  If we find this new approach to support is successful, IS will consider expanding the scope of after-hours support.  We ask that you bear with us as we fine-tune this new support model.  If you have any questions or feedback please email Jeff Wardwell at

Thank you.



Additional Faculty/Staff Parking in Lynn (whoo hoo!)

Please note that as of 9/23/19, 14 additional faculty/staff parking spaces (yellow-lined) have been made available at the Lynn Campus.  They are located in the Washington St. parking lot directly across from the modular building.  Signage is up indicating that these spaces are reserved for faculty and staff.



Engage with NSCC on Social Media!

The start of a new semester is always a good time to remind the college community of all the various social media channels the college has to communicate, share information and engage with followers. We were thrilled to hit 7,000 Facebook followers last week and enjoy interacting with our students, alumni and community friends. Whether you are into Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, LinkedIn or Flickr, NSCC has you covered. To get links to all our sites go to NSCC Social Media on the college web site. And please remember that you can expand the College's social media presence by “liking” and “sharing” content with your own networks. For your review, attached are the college’s official Social Media Guidelines.
