Establishing standards increases the University's ability to maintain proficiency in the procurement, installation, maintenance and life-cycle management of its IT systems and resources.
We provide limited support for all personally-owned equipment, which includes, but is not limited to desktops, laptops, and mobile devices (such as tablets and smartphones). Limited support means that ITS will make a concerted effort to provide assistance. To review the current level of supported computer applications and web based systems, please visit Supported Software page.
