Ticket System:

When you contact us, we immediately enter your request into our ticket tracking system. We will ask for your location, phone number, email address and a summary of the problem. You will be assigned a ticket number and will receive an email confirmation for your records.  ITS staff will track your ticket, recording any information related to the problem and solution. Once your ticket is closed, you will be notified by email. Please let us know if you have any follow up questions or problems. Even if we resolve your problem immediately by phone, creating the ticket will help us keep a record of the types of problems encountered, so that we can develop better methods for providing support to the campus.
