Support for personal computers/mobile devices

The IT Help Desk will provide the support necessary on your personal device (e.g. laptop, smartphone, tablet) to ensure connectivity to the University's network, providing the issue is not hardware-related.  

Due to liability concerns, the IT Help Desk cannot provide support on personal devices other than what is outlined below.  Under no circumstances will personal computing equipment be left at the IT Help Desk for any length of time.

If the issue can’t be resolved in a 15 minute walk-in appointment, the client will be given the option to schedule a 30 minute appointment with a Help Desk Technician.
