IT Service Desk

IT Service Desk

The IT Service Desk provides a friendly and helpful point of contact for IT Services and support for students, staff and visitors to the University.

During the month of August, regularly scheduled on-site DTS support at our Uxbridge campus will only be available on Mondays. At all other times support will be provided remotely and, as per normal, tickets must be logged via the IT Service Desk either by emailing or calling using the below details.

If a critical issue occurs that could cause or is causing major disruption to services and/or University activities then we will visit asap if we are unable to resolve the incident via remote support. If multiple, non-critical incidents occur that require a physical presence then we will arrange a visit later in the week where all incidents can be resolved on the same day. If you are at all uncertain of what constitutes a major/critical incident and a non-major/critical incident then please contact the Service Desk who will be able to advise and assist accordingly.

This change in support arrangements is being made due to no formal teaching taking place over August and so that our resources can be deployed elsewhere to work on major DTS projects that form part of the Digital Strategy and Impact 2022.

Normal service will resume in September and we will update this article with a confirmed date.

On-site support at High Wycombe remains unchanged.

If you require assistance in resolving an incident or would like to log a request then please email the IT Service Desk at or call on 01494 605000 Option 1.
