IT Help Desk Ticket

Sam Fox School IT primarily supports Audio Visual (AV) and Printing. However, we work with WashU IT and STS (residential students) and Tech Den (non-residential and graduate students) to help in all situations.

Call 314-933-3333 or email to submit questions or issues. You can also go directly to the IT help desk system called ServiceNow to submit a ticket (see instructions below). A technology specialist will respond or direct you to the appropriate resource.

If you just want to submit a printing refund request, go to this link.

What if I just want to meet with someone in person?

You should still submit a help desk ticket. Calling 933-3333 can also often resolve or direct you to the appropriate technician.

However our Sam Fox School IT team is always willing to take walk in meetings. Our team is located in the Whitaker Learning Lab and will help when available and not meeting with others. If you think your concern might take long you can request some time to meet. Student Technology Services will also support student walk in’s on the South 40.
