When is support available for this service?

Support for classroom technology is available while classes are in session. Please contact the OIT Service Desk at 209-228-HELP (4357) for assistance.

How long does it take to get this service?

When you report a problem to the OIT Service Desk, we will quickly dispatch a technician from one of our support locations. Depending on the location of the classroom in question, it could take 5 to 15 minutes for the technician to arrive. If our technician encounters issues that cannot be resolved during the initial visit, we will troubleshoot and resolve the issue(s) outside of class time in order to avoid disruption to instruction.

How do I stop or change this service?

If you require equipment listed above as "by request only", you will need to submit an General IT Request with the equipment you'd like to use, the room you need it for, and the day and time the equipment is needed. Please submit requests a minimum of one week in advance as availability may be limited.

What does the service cost?

There are no costs associated with this service.
