  • Email, Canvas, and other system-wide applications
  • software licenses
  • PC and Mac problems

For more in-depth help, we can refer you to specialists.


    Recommended Contact Methods

    Other Contact Methods

    • Call 612-301-4357 
    • Walk-ins: several of our walk-in locations have resumed operations. Hours and locations are listed below; hours will expand at the start of the Fall Semester. Please observe University Policy and public health guidelines when seeking in-person support. Per University Health & Safety (UHS) guidelines, please note the following when visiting the Walk-in locations on campus:
      • Masks are required in all University buildings, including walk-ins. Hand sanitizer is available and the shared areas will be cleaned between customers.
      • If a walk-in is fully occupied, we ask that you find a space outside of the space and away from others to wait. This helps us limit the number of people in the space to allow safe physical distancing. 
      • Many shared computers and collaboration areas have been removed from the walk-ins to ensure physical distancing requirements are met. This means that fewer computers are available in each space, so please plan accordingly.
