About the CIT HelpDesk
CIT has friendly and helpful staff available via phone, remote support, and in Fraser Library. The HelpDesk provides technical support for the SUNY Geneseo community including:
- Network setup (including WiFi & VPN)
- Adding printers
- Academic software installation
- Sign-out and support technology available for loan
- Answering general computer questions
HelpDesk staff are not able to perform hardware repair or troubleshooting, OS installation, data recovery, or malware removal. Protect your technology investment by seeking in-warranty assistance from your computer manufacturer or Authorized Service Providers. CIT does not officially partner with any third parties for student repairs. The closest Apple Authorized Service Provider is the Apple Store at Eastview Mall.
For more information about the services available from the CIT HelpDesk or other technology questions, call 585-245-5588, chat with a representative, submit a request in our online system, or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Technology Support for Departments
Each academic department is part of a cluster that is supported by a Technology Support Professional (TSP). Your TSP can assist you with all desktop computing needs. Contact the CIT HelpDesk by calling call 585-245-5588, submitting a request in our online system, or send an email to email@example.com to place a request for your TSP.
