We provide remote and in-person support and all requests are tracked in our ticketing system. To place a request for support:

  • Email us at [email protected]
  • Call us at 202-994-0123
  • Visit the SEAS Computing Facility Service Desk in Tompkins 401 during our operating hours.

All requests require that you provide a SEAS asset tag. The asset tag is blue and white, includes SEAS and five numbers and is included on all SEAS equipment. The tag will help technicians identify the type of equipment, operating system and warranty status, and verify the location and applications installed on it, if relevant.
