CLA Service Desk

Our Service Desk is the hub of our support offerings for CLA. We have both experienced CLA technicians and some great students on hand to take care of your needs. Based on the issue and your preference, the Service Desk can help you over the phone, fix problems remotely, send out a tech for an immediate on-site fix, or schedule an appointment with your CLA-OIT Technology Administrator.


CLA faculty, staff, and graduate students
