Help and Support

IT Services Opening Times

IT Services and IT Support are open Monday to Friday 9am - 5pm except standard College Holidays between Christmas and New year and Easter.

College holiday dates are available from the Human Resourcses web pages.

If you're not sure...

If you're not sure what your problem might be, or even how to describe it, then please do contact us. We are here to help.

What will happen?

Once you've contacted the HelpDesk one of our IT Support Centre staff will attempt to establish the nature of the problem and resolve it with you.

If the problem you have requires further investigation or a visit from one of the IT Support Team, then we'll take your details and you'll be contacted to arrange a convenient time during which our staff can meet with you and further examine, and hopefully resolve, your support request.

On most occasions when a support request is generated by a call or email it will be recorded in the HelpDesk system, which we use to monitor support requests. Once we've resolved your support request you'll be sent an email which offers you the option to provide feedback on your satisfaction with our service. We value your responses to these emails, and we use the data we collect to improve the service we provide.
