    • How to log a call with ITDS Helpdesk

      If you experience any problems logging into your student email, self service Banner or Moodle you must log a call with the Information, Technology & Digital Services (ITDS) helpdesk.

      Please be prepared to provide your Banner ID and be able to provide any additional information for security purposes in the event that you do not have your Banner ID card with you.

      Once a call is logged, ask the Analyst for the incident number. Taking a note of this number will make it easier to find your call should you wish an update.

      Your 'My Documents' folder on the desktop is also redirected to your personal Home drive. You have 200mb of space on the server and all files are backed up on a daily basis.
