UIS Service Desk Support with COVID-19

With the safer-at-home order still in place, the UIS Service Desk has been working hard to ensure you can continue to work remotely without issue. While we have been able to mostly support our end-users using secure remote connections, there are situations where we may ask you to return your device to 1800 Grant for technical support.

The UIS Service Desk Team strives to ensure all employees remain safe during these times. To ensure we are able to social distance appropriately, please contact the Service Desk and schedule a time to meet with one of our technicians if you have to bring your equipment in. 

Our team practices safety measures by wearing face masks, using hand sanitizer continuously and disinfecting your device before giving it back to you. Please help us prevent the spread of COVID-19 by calling (303) 860-4357 and scheduling a time or open a ticket by emailing us at help@cu.edu. We look forward to serving you!
