University of Charleston

Technology Services works to provide students, faculty, and staff, as well as the extended community, access to institutional resources through technology-enabled environments.

In addition, the department supports the use of technology to expand both access to and the scope of academic programs by assisting faculty in the creation of technology-enhanced offerings and capabilities.

The IT Help Desk is available to provide assistance to University of Charleston faculty, staff, and students with their technology-related issues and requests.

The Technology Services Department provides direct support to University-owned computers.

Please note: Computers owned by students are not supported. Students needing assistance should contact the manufacturer of the device. Limited troubleshooting assistance is available to students for network connectivity issues.
