When submitting a problem it is critical that you tell us when we can meet with you to help you fix it. Your problem will get solved much quicker by eliminating emails and calls trying to set up a meeting. Also, we can solve problems quicker when we have as much information about the problem as possible.

If you have a computer problem, a network port activation request, or a problem with a department server, please submit a ticket by going to our ticket system website or sending an email to help@biology.utah.edu.

Security

We are under constant attack and if you fall victim it can be very costly in terms of time and money.

  • Take the training.
  • Get to know us, there's only 2 of us. Do not trust anyone else unless we tell you they are trustable. Ask us when you don't know something (we love to talk). Please contact the main office (1-6517) if you need immediate assistance.
  • We never ask for passwords. Ever. We don't want to know them. Don't ever tell anyone your password.
  • We will never delete your accounts or personal data without a lot of warning, like weeks or even months. Never believe an email that says you have to act immediately. If something is that urgent we will call over the phone or visit in person.
