When is the Help Desk available?

Tickets can be submitted via the web client  or email on a 24x7x365 basis.  If submitted after hours, a confirmation email will be received and a technician will begin addressing the request on the next working day. 

The Help Desk phone will be answered during normal working hours.   Every effort will be made to answer your call promptly; however, it may be necessary for you to occasionally leave a message while staff assist others with their technical issues. 

A staff member or student worker will be available at the Help Desk in the Lenfest Learning Commons of the John Stewart Memorial Library during normal Help Desk hours.  However, due to resource limitations, on occasion there may be times when they need to leave the desk to assist others or to complete department projects to improve the level of service to the Wilson community.  If you need to work directly with someone face-to-face, it is best to call the Help Desk to confirm availability or schedule an appointment. 

 

What are the Help Desk normal working hours?

The Help Desk is available Monday through Thursday from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Friday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m..  The Help Desk is closed on those days that the College is closed for holidays and breaks.
