The IT Helpdesk is the first point of contact for any IT related issue or query. We provide 1st line support and general IT advice for both students and staff across the University.
We aim to resolve your query as quickly as possible by either remotely connecting to your machine to fix the issue, providing you with the relevant information needed, or escalating the call to one of our IT Advisors who will visit you directly.
All calls are managed within our service desk system, and will be prioritised according to the nature of the issue.
