Office: Room 136 on the first floor of the Raised Faculty Building (RFB)

Opening Hours: Monday-Friday 9am-4pm (except UK Bank Holidays and University closures). Emails received outside Helpdesk hours will be logged by our online ticketing system and dealt with the next working day.

General IT Support: The whole IT team provides support to all other members of the Faculty with a couple of exceptions:

  • If you're an undergraduate or member of staff with a problem with the computer in your college you should talk to your local support staff.
  • We're not able to support home machines.

Otherwise, if you have a problem with any IT equipment (hardware or software) in the Raised Faculty Building, including the Grad Centre, Library IT Rooms, the CALL Facility, the teaching rooms, the machine in your office, your phone or MFD, or have a general query about how to achieve your computing goals, or make the most of the technology available to you, you need to talk to us. We can also advise on specific projects or the technological aspects of your grant applications.

Computing assistance:

STAFF: If you're calling about the computer in your office please ensure that you know the name of your computer. Your computer will have a small label afixed to the left-hand corner of the screen. This is the name of your computer and will start with: MMLMAC*** <-- e.g. MMLMAC001, MMLWIN002 or MML0002. If you're contacting us regarding a computer in one of the teaching rooms please follow the guidelines for students. 

STUDENTS: If you're calling about a problem with one of the MCS computers in the Library, CALL Facility or Graduate Centre, please quote the number on the top of the computer that should read something like PCMMLGC01 as this will speed things up no end.

Our Commitment

  • We'll endeavor to resolve your problem, or provide the appropriate advice, in a timely manner. Please be advised though that at peak times of year, such as the start of Michaelmas Term, demand for services and support is extremely high and delays can, regrettably, occur. Wherever possible, we strongly advise staff to contact us with any questions regarding use of equipment well in advance so that we can plan our schedules appropriately.
  • We will acknowledge receipt of your email or call with a Help Desk Ticket.
  • If we're unable to resolve your problem straight away we will keep you appraised of progress towards its resolution.
