Student Affairs IT Services provides technology support for a variety of services at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. Support is always available during normal business operating hours. For services that operate regularly outside of normal business hours the After Hours Support Request form can be used to request assistance for critical/timely situations.

Special Events Support

Technology staff may also provide support as needed for special events during non-business hours on a scheduled basis. You must contact IT Services a minimum of 1 week before the event to make sure prep work can be done and resources are available.

Non-Emergency After Hour Request

Resolution of any problem during non-business hours may be dependent upon the nature of the problem and the availability of resources or service and parts from third party vendors. IT will assess a reported problem and determine a reasonable resolution plan based upon the severity of the problem and resources required. IT will work to resolve the problem as quickly as possible. For a problem that requires more than four hours to resolve, a status message will be forwarded to the community; the medium will depend on the nature and type of system failure.

IT support for an individual’s computer (related to hardware, operating system, application software including email, and remote network connectivity) or for computers in labs or classrooms is handled by the UWM Help Desk.
