During academic semesters, the ITS Support Center is open Mondays through Thursdays, 8am-6:30pm and Fridays 8am-4:30pm. Students may drop in anytime we're open for help from our Student Techs. Faculty and staff are strongly encouraged to submit tickets via this portal, as technicians are able to resolve many problems remotely. If an issue can't be resolved remotely, we'll schedule an appointment to ensure appropriate technical staff are available to assist.
