Faculty IT Support Team aims to provide Faculty-wide IT Support that is relevant for you and for the College in meeting the targets and aspirations of all who work or study in the College.
How do I get Support?
- Call the Service Desk on ext. 49000
- E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
- Find your answer or log a request online
What will the Faculty ICT staff be doing?
Staff will be recording and resolving all IT support requests in the ICT Service Desk software to allow accurate prioritisation of work, information updates for you, and a history of work carried out. This history can be used to help define where users have poorly performing systems such that appropriate steps can be taken to resolve the situation. In addition it will enable ICT to monitor the workload and assign support engineers to the areas where there is greatest demand.
What do the Team Support?
The Team will provide support for staff using a workstation (running a Microsoft, Linux, or Mac Operating System) provided on their desk for College work. Other Operating Systems (such as Solaris or Unix variants) may be supported by other ICT resources on a “reasonable endeavours” basis. The support provided is for both administration and research machines and covers all standard software, installation and networking issues. For non-standard or research specific software support is provided on a “reasonable endeavours” basis. The team cannot get involved in writing Access databases or similar requests.
A full list of Facilities contacts can be found on the Physics Facilities page.
Thupten and Jatinder look after all the Groups in Physics. They process transactions and deal with queries relating to purchases, expense claims, journal approval, bursary form approval, accounts and balance enquiries. They administer recharges of Postgraduate tuition fees, telephone charges, research training support grants and other recharges as required. They are also responsible for setting up and closing departmental accounts and authorising access to the Purchasing system.
