Help Center

The Help Center is the initial point of contact for requests for assistance. All requests are tracked. Call the Help Center at 2-HELP (617-552-4357) to speak directly to a Help Center Specialist. If your issue cannot be addressed over the phone, a service ticket will be assigned to the appropriate department. If a problem requires on-site assistance, it is quickly routed to your Technology Consultant.

Help Center Support Hours

Monday through Friday, between the hours of 9 a.m. and 7 p.m. (5 p.m. during the summer), the Help Center is fully staffed and ready to offer assistance. After 7 p.m. and on weekends, support is limited; staff will answer calls, log requests, and begin to find solutions.

Technology Consultants (TCs)

Faculty seeking assistance may contact the Technology Consultant assigned to their department. TCs provide a wide range of desktop computing support and technology-related consulting. TCs have offices near the area they support to facilitate on-site assistance.
