The Helpdesk ISSC (ICT Shared Service Centre) provides support to all users of the academic workplace. You can contact the Helpdesk with all your questions about the University ICT services, the ICT environment and software. Of course you can also contact the Helpdesk to request a change or to report a problem.

Contact Central Helpdesk

All customer questions and reports are recorded with a unique call number in the incident database. The helpdesk provides this call number to you. Referencing to the call number, you can inquire about the status of your incident or change. For urgent matters please call the helpdesk at ext 8888. For less urgent matters and change requests you can e-mail your question to the helpdesk. The e-mail is read daily, but at busy times sometimes it can take longer than one day before you receive an answer to your question.

Handling your request

Questions about the ICT environment and standard university programmes can generally be answered straight away by the Helpdesk. As well as this, the Helpdesk staff are able to manage your computer remotely so that problems can be resolved quickly at the workplace. 

Questions of a more specialist nature will be referred by the Helpdesk to a specialist group. This is a group of people who are specialists in a particular field. Specialist groups may be within the ISSC, within a different part of the university or at an external supplier.

ICT contact person

Not all requests that come directly to the Helpdesk can be handled immediately. In most cases, any modifications to your workplace (hardware and software) require the approval of your ICT contact person. Once this approval has been given, we can start to deal with your request.
You can find an up-to-date list of ICT contact persons here

Telephony co-ordinator

Changes or requests relating to telephony can be addressed to your telephony co-ordinator. He or she can give approval, if necessary, for name changes or can authorise changes in traffic class.
