Soft Phones

Desk phone

The UIS Service Desk provides telephone support for the CU System Administration Building at 1800 Grant St. We setup new phones, provision new users, assist in resetting voicemail passwords and train users on our phone systems. Additionally, we troubleshoot phone and voicemail problems. Note: Employees located on CU campuses should request telephone support from campus IT departments.

Mobile phone

The UIS Service Desk provisions access to departmental printers on our print servers and troubleshoot printer connection issues. We can help change "wear and tear parts" that are easily replaceable and with errors that do not require a technician (such as clearing paper jams). We contact the manufacturer for more sophisticated mechanical printer repair.

Software Support

The UIS Service Desk assists with software purchases and install standard applications and additional software we obtain. We troubleshoot software errors, make support calls to third-party vendors for supported software and make our best effort to assist with unsupported software. System Administration departments are eligible to receive many software applications free of charge and are responsible for license costs and support fees for non-standard software purchases.

Technology Purchases

The UIS Service Desk advises and offers strategic planning to System Administration departments on hardware and software purchases. We assist with purchasing IT-related equipment, but departments are responsible for budgeting appropriate funds for these purchases. We also facilitate new computer purchases through the University Price Agreement between CU and Dell. With this agreement, CU System Administration departments get exceptional savings on desktop and laptop computer purchases.
