IT Services


We offer many ways of getting help with your computer and IT issues.

IT Service Desk

The IT Service Desk is the first point of contact for all IT help and support. We have a number of ways to contact the IT Service desk, including:

  • Live Chat. You can contact the IT Service Desk 24/7 by clicking on the IT Live Chat button.
  • Telephone. You can also call us on 020 7882 8888 from Monday to Friday, 7am-7pm. We also offer Out-of-Hours support; details about which can be found further down this page.
  • Email. Send us a message at
  • Self-service Portal. Use our online system to submit a ticket any time, day or night. 

Note that room G15 in the Francis Bancroft building houses the ITS Equipment Provision team (eg, laptops, accessories). Room G15, along with ITS in Department W, do not offer walk-in services and can be used by appointment only. To schedule an appointment, please submit a service desk ticket.

Face-to-Face Appointments 

ITS can troubleshoot most issues by phone, Live Chat, email, and our self-service portal. If we’re unable to resolve your issue via these channels, we will then schedule a face-to-face appointment with a Level 2 Campus Customer Support (CCS) team member. Although we can meet with you anywhere on campus as required, we usually hold face-to-face appointments in the following places:

  • Mile End: Room G15 in the Francis Bancroft building (room G15 also houses the ITS Equipment Provision Team (eg, laptops, accessories, etc)).
  • Whitechapel: Hill Centre in the Garrod building.

Room G15, along with the IT Service Desk in Department W, do not offer walk-in services and can be used by appointment onlyTo schedule an appointment, please submit a service desk ticket or contact us on Live Chat.


Need more assistance? If you have submitted a ticket, gone through the usual support process and you are not satisfied with the level of service or timeliness of a resolution, you can escalate IT issues. Learn more about how to escalate tickets here.

Out-of-Hours Phone Support 

Need help after hours? Contact, our Out-of-Hours phone support service, by dialing the usual IT Service Desk number (0207 882 8888) between 7pm - 7am on weekdays, all weekends, and during University closures and Bank Holidays.

If our team is unable to resolve your query directly, they will raise a ticket for you and pass it along to the IT Service Desk for further investigation.
