IT Service Desk

The IT Support Desk is a technical support team that provides prompt, knowledgeable, courteous computing support services in person and over the phone.  The Support Desk resolves over 90% of all incoming issues independently.  If we cannot resolve an issue on the phone, we escalate your inquiry and you will be contacted by a member of our team.

  • Consultative support and assistance with general technology use
  • Software installation and best-effort support for use of software
  • Assistance with EKU supported software, applications, and EKU IT services
  • Virus/malware cleanup
  • Training (individual, small group, and large group)
  • AV Support for Classrooms/Events

IT Geeks

Any EKU student is eligible for support and consultations from the IT Geeks. Troubleshooting is generally limited to 15-minute sessions if there are other clients waiting for help, but if there is no line a Geek will be glad to work longer to resolve your issue unless we immediately know the issue should be dropped off for advanced support.
