The nature of what we do requires that we are away from our desks throughout the day. If you report a problem by calling an Institutional Technology staff member directly, your work order may be delayed.

We’ll do everything in our power to make your experience easy and quick. We prioritize each request when you contact us and immediately put your request into a help desk ticket in our computer system.

Help desk tickets, whether submitted by phone or email, that include detailed information assists us in responding efficiently to everyone’s request for assistance. The detailed information includes: first and last name, Student ID number, phone number, email and best time to reach you.
