Tech Desk & Support Options

Please stay vigilant for phishing, and other suspicious attempts to compromise your account.

We are currently seeing a number of large scale phishing campaigns being reported. Please delete any emails asking for your UST username and password, or indicating that you will receive a phone call to respond to, and report anything that may seem suspicious. Be aware that some phishing emails may even be coming from a UST email address, so be alert for anything that seems suspicious.

DO NOT follow any links provided in email and supply your UST credentials. If you already did and supplied any of your account information, please reset your password or call the Tech Desk to confirm your identity and receive a password reset as soon as possible.

Please watch for further guidance that will come in emails from our Information Security Team Mailbox.

 

You can get support for your technology problems through a variety of ways. 

 

 

What to Include in Your Request:

The ingredients for quick problem resolution are when you are prepared to provide extensive detail and information regarding: a description of the problem, the date and time it occurred, any error messages you may be seeing, the location this occurred (on campus, off campus, a specific building, etc.), screenshots (if possible).

We also suggest keeping track of your ticket number so that we can quickly check the progress and status of your support request.
