Computer Support Policy

The Help Desk’s primary function is to support systems and equipment purchased by the College, e.g. faculty and staff workstations, lab computers, and other public workstations.

Students, faculty, and staff may bring their personal computers to the Help Desk for first-tier troubleshooting and diagnosis. In cases where it is deemed necessary, we can attempt to back up and recover files relating to academic work. Escalation to second-tier support and repair is determined on a case-by-case basis. The Help Desk cannot order or provide replacement parts.

We do not send technicians out to student dorm rooms. The only exception is to run diagnostics on wireless signals; in these cases, students must first bring their device(s) into the Help Desk office to confirm connectivity.

We do not support personal printers or scanners.

We are not able send technicians to faculty or staff homes.

Changing passwords

Except under unusual circumstances, the Help Desk will not change passwords over the phone. Please come into Help Desk with your SLC ID to have us help you change your password.
