From Monday 16 January, IT supporters will be moving to a new home. This means that they will no longer be based within the Faculties. This move ties in with the relocation of the remaining Computing Services staff to the refurbished 6 West building. Our IT training facilities are moving too.
The way you ask for help isn't changing and you can request IT support by logging a support ticket in the usual way.
This is the first time that many of our IT supporters and Service Desk staff have worked side by side. We believe that this move will provide greater efficiency of the IT support we provide to our customers and additionally the opportunity to design more innovative solutions to make your working life easier. A few of the benefits are:
- Collaborative working - with all our IT colleagues in one space
- Shared knowledge - with such a wide range of varied expertise, we can share knowledge
- Eliminating risks of single points of failure.
As supporters will no longer be based in the departments, we would like to use this opportunity to encourage greater communication between you, your department and User Services and we welcome ideas to facilitate this.
