Information Services Helpdesk

How you can help us help you:
All calls are logged in a database for tracking and reference. If you have network connectivity please log into and submit a New Support Ticket. If you contact the HelpDesk by phone be prepared to answer some questions and follow some troubleshooting instructions. You most certainly will be asked questions similar to these:

  • What kind of computer and Operating System version are you working from?
  • What is your student ID number?
  • What program were you in when you experienced the error? What were you attempting to do?
  • If you are experiencing a problem with a monitor or hardware, what model is it?

Problems are attended to in the order received. Do not report a problem to a support staff member directly. This will only delay the process. All calls must be reported to the HelpDesk before a staff member can begin working on the problem. In most cases, the person experiencing the problem should report the problem. HelpDesk may need to speak directly to the person experiencing the problem before proceeding.

The HelpDesk provides technical support services to students, faculty and staff members in the Harrisburg University campus community.

Hours: Monday through Thursday, 8:30 am – 6:30 pm; Friday, 8:30 am – 5:00 pm
