Every attempt will be made to resolve callers' issues during the initial phone call. If the request cannot be resolved at first contact,it will then be logged as a service request and the most appropriate local ITS support staff member at each campus will respond directly.

ITS SERVICE DESK: For all ITS-related requests, please submit your request using the ITS Service Desk portal. Just click on the link above.

Alternately, you can contact the Employee Service Desk at ext. 4357, or in person on the third floor of Bricker Academic.

For new  Novell/GroupWise account creations, you are no longer required to sign the form and pick up the account at the ITS Help Desk.
