IT & Media Services: Your Technology Partner

  • When you call the Helpdesk, every effort is made to assist you while you are on the line. If we can’t resolve the issue immediately, we will create a “ticket.” The “ticket” is then directed to the appropriate member of the IT professional staff, who will contact you in regards to the next steps. This process helps us to provide consistent support and to measure and track technical support issues.

    Hours of Operation

    The Helpdesk is open seven days per week when classes are in session. Hours are subject to change for periods in which the campus is not open, either for a scheduled closure, inclement weather, or other circumstances.

    The Helpdesk can be reached by dialing extension 7060 from a campus phone line or 508-767-7060. If you have a computer issue outside the Helpdesk hours, please leave us a message. You will receive a response to your question as soon as possible when the Helpdesk reopens.
