What Is It?

Desktop Support technicians will provide hardware and software support for university-owned computers and peripherals between 9:00 am and 4:00 pm (excluding holidays).  This paid service is available for departments on campus that do not have their own dedicated technical (REACH) support staff.

  • Installation, configuration, and troubleshooting of university-owned computer hardware and peripherals
