Full-time, knowledgeable staff members are available to help answer your questions, resolve your issues and fulfill service requests. These professionals may remote control your machine to solve your technical issue quickly. Our goal is first contact resolution, but we will seamlessly escalate your support request through our ticketing system if necessary.



Emailed support requests will be logged in our ticketing system and assigned to the appropriate team.


Requests for equipment, applications or account maintenance must be submitted by your Departmental Computing Liaison (DCL) (formerly known as Technical Coordinator) or other Approved Person via the Footprints ticketing system.  The DCL will need to use their DCL Footprints account (not their career account) to access the DCL template in Footprints.
