The College of Visual Arts and Design Service Desk

The primary support hub for the College of Visual Arts and Design students, faculty, and staff - we support all information technology resources, equipment, and services provided by the college. If you need help with an information technology resource outside of the college, we can help as well. You can contact us via our online service desk in Microsoft Teams with any questions you may have and receive direct, immediate support on any issue.
