Colby ITS merged our support centers in July 2017.


In July 2017, ITS launched a new approach to our helpdesk and support services. We merged our three support centers, Faculty/Staff, Student Computer Services, and Media Resources, into one: the ITS Support Center. We turned your feedback into a more streamlined customer service approach with one point of contact to support the needs of faculty, staff, and students.

Our Vision for the ITS Support Center is:
to provide consistent, responsive, and professional support with outstanding customer service.

Our Goals

  • Provide a single location, a phone number, and a single email so that customers can easily contact us and receive responsive service.
  • Assist our customers to get the training and resources they need to do their job.
  • Increase the capacity of the ITS Support Center by having more staff and student workers able to respond to a wider variety of support issues.
  • Improve our capacity to handle calls with a goal of answering every call during operating hours.

What’s Changed?

  • A single location for the ITS Support Center in 146 Lovejoy.
  • One phone number, 859-4222. The other two numbers, 859-4224 and 859-4245, will be forwarded to 859-4222 when the new ITS Support Center launches.
