Information Services & Technology

Need Help is a knowledgebase that contains frequently requested information. The knowledgebase allows students, faculty and staff to search for information and help for common information technology issues related to CSU. Information can be located by typing in a question or through browsing the various topics. If you do not find the information you are looking for in the knowledgebase, you can click on “ASK A QUESTION” on the bottom of the page to pose a new question. If you have useful information to add to an existing entry, you can add a comment. Our technicians will regularly review the questions and comments and those deemed appropriate will be added to the knowledgebase. IS&T reserves the right to edit both questions and comments to ensure they are useful, accurate and appropriate.

Technician support is available from 8:00AM until 9:00PM Monday through Thursday and from 8:00AM until 5:00PM on Friday and Saturday. No regular technician support is available on Sundays. Contact technician support via the Call Center at (216)687-5050.

If you met the following criteria, we will have a technician contact you about your hardware or software support issue. The technician will either work remotely with your PC or visit you directly.

Criteria we use to support PC hardware on campus:

  1. The PC was purchased by the University
  2. The PC was purchased according to the University Procurement process
  3. The PC is not used in a "open lab" situation (teaching lab, open student lab, open kiosks)
IS&T only supports PCs outside of these criteria if a Service Level Agreement has previously been established.

Please note that many colleges and departments have technical support - these staff members provide support on all of their area's computers and should be your first contact..
