Emergency After Hours Support

On-call after hours emergency support is available outside normal Help Desk hours. The service is available for wide-scale outages and university-critical business. To receive emergency support call 319-384-4357 (HELP) and follow the directions to leave a message. The Help Desk on-call agent will quickly return your call.

All customer issues are important to ITS and the Help Desk strives to resolve them in a timely manner, but only emergency situations will be addressed by the after hours emergency service. The Help Desk on-call agent will determine if the issue is an emergency. 

Routine calls received after-hours will be handled the next business day. Examples of routine calls are:

  • An individual who is unable to access an ITS-provided service, but the service is available to all other customers.
  • An individual who is having computer problems that does not involve critical university-related business.
  • A HawkID password reset
