IT Help Desk
The IT Help Desk can assist you with computer configuration issues, discuss software problems, assist you with network access difficulties, repair hardware malfunctions for university-owned equipment, or give you advice for any technical issue you may encounter.
Please note: the IT Help Desk can not perform hardware repairs for students' personally-owned computers; however, they can help you make the determination that it is in fact a hardware problem that the manufacturer should address.
You may contact the IT Help Desk at 202-885-2550, email them at firstname.lastname@example.org, or instant message them at AskAmericanUHelp.
