The IT Service Desk is the first point of contact for staff and student IT related queries, problems and requests in regard to the IT services offered by Digital Services.

A call will be logged, on our Unidesk system, against your staff (E-Code or A-Code) or student ID (B-Code), so please have this available when contacting the IT Service Desk. You will be supplied with a call reference number and this should be quoted if requesting a call update.

What the Service Desk needs from you

  • Please supply all relevant information, such as contact details, device name/operating system/browser, description of the issue, and screenshots of error messages received. This will aid us in accurately logging a ticket for you. The IT Service Desk will never ask you to disclose your password either over the phone or by email.
  • If you have logged a call previously for a similar issue, you are seeking an update to a current call, or you wish to cancel a call, please provide the call reference number.
  • Depending on the request, we may require further information to verify your identity, or progress the call, so please check your email updates. You can also check the status by logging in to the Unidesk self-service portal.
