Consulting for Faculty and Staff
Core consultants are available to provide on-site support to faculty members who currently do not have IT support. All consulting services are provided through the 24/7 Help Desk and tracked in the call tracking database. Faculty and staff members who have technical questions or problems should contact the 24/7 Help Desk at 412-624-HELP (4357).
Consulting services are available to all faculty and staff at their University office location between 8:30 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. weekdays. Assistance is provided for troubleshooting hardware, operating system, supported software, and network problems. Ongoing problems, special projects, and departmental requests are referred to the onsite consulting program for a needs analysis and solution recommendation.
If on-site support is needed, a core consultant will contact the faculty member to schedule an appointment. If departments require dedicated, full-time or part-time support for their staff, Pitt Information Technology's Departmental Contracts program can provide assistance.
