LACC IT Overview

Welcome to LACC!   This page will give you an overview of the basic IT tools and information you will need to start working.

Parking Information

If you drive to the college, you need to get a Parking permit from the Physical Plant office (Administration Building 218 or 317D).   You will need the following information: Employee number, your vehicle(s) license number and make/model/year/color.   Campus police will ticket vehicles without a Parking permit.

  • Note:  You can get a one-day parking permit at the Sheriff's office located on Heliotrope Dr.
  • Note:  While you are at the Physical Plant office, ask about carpooling and other greener modes of transportation.
  • Note:  If you do not know your employee number, go to the Personnel Office, Administration building room 213.   While you are there, ask for your Class code; you will need it later.

Los Angeles City College has several networks for different types of users:

  • Employee Network: This is the network used by faculty and staff. Computers found in offices and other work spaces are typically part of the Employee Network.
  • Academic Network: This is the student network. Computers in Student Labs, and classroom podiums are part of the Academic Network.
  • Wireless (WiFi): The Wireless connection is not available in all areas of the campus. An Academic Network account is required to log in to the campus WiFi.

At your office, you need your Administrative Network account (username and password) to be able to log on the employee campus computers. You will use this account to check your email ( using the Internet. If you are a LACCD employee assigned to LACC, your Network Accounts is created automatically.

Faculty (certified employees) also have an Academic Network account to log into the lab computers. For faculty, this account is also created automatically.

Most of the staff (classified employees) only need an Administrative Network account. Some staff such as lab assistants need an Academic Network account to use the lab computers. If you also need an Academic Network account, use the Request for Employee Network/Email Account form.   Make sure to specify that the request is for the Academic network.

Faculty also have an SIS account to get class rosters and assign grades. For faculty, this account is also created automatically.

Some staff also have an SIS account to accomplish their work functions.

All employees, faculty and staff, have an LACCD Portal account to access the Employee Self-Service system (ESS).   ESS allows you to see and manage some of your personal information such as your address for paycheck mailing and insurance information among others. To authorized users, the LACCD Portal also gives access to the Personnel Change Request system (PCR) and Business Warehouse (BW).

  • Note:  SIS, Employee Network, Academic Network and LACCD Portal accounts are different accounts even if their usernames might look the same. Because they are different accounts, their passwords will be different unless you change them individually to be the same. Be aware that the LACCD Portal username looks completely different than your other usernames.

If you have any technical inquiry or problem, contact the IT Help Desk at extension 2049. 

If you need training or information about any of the LACC/LACCD systems, check on the IT Help Page for information.  If the information is not there, contact the Teaching Learning Center office at extension 2480.

Employee Numbers

The following is additional information about employee number and the assignment number(s).

  • Employee numbers are assigned by the LACCD District Office and not by individual campuses.
  • Each employee receives an unique employee number. This number will not change.
  • Employees will have one assignment number for each work assignment.
  • Employee numbers and assignment numbers are different things.
  • If you do not know your employee number, go to the Personnel Office, Administration Building Room 213.

Before the Human Resources transition to SAP, Employee numbers had 6 digits. Now all the employee numbers have 8 digits. This is called the 8-digit employee number.

Two leading zeros were added to the old 6 digit numbers to be converted to 8 digits.

  • example:  779565 --> 00779565

The Employee numbers created after the transition to SAP are 8 digits and start with 01.
    example:  01455124

When talking, most people ignore the leading zeros.
8-digit number     ---     People say
00779565           ---     6 digits:   779565
01455124           ---     7 digits: 1455124

If you are asked to enter your Employee number, make sure to use the number zero and not the letter "o".
