Step 14: The ITS Help Desk & USF Computer Essentials

The ITS (Information Technology Services) Help Desk is your bridge to successful computing at USF, and provides support in person, on the phone and through e-mail.

Visit the ITS "How Do I?" web page to view the Student Quick Start Guide. Together, these resources provide information and advice about:

  • Desktop Computing, including purchasing computer hardware and software that meets recommended standards
  • Communication and Social Media, including e-mail, file sharing, myUSF, USF Mobile, and USF Wiki
  • Internet and Campus Network Access, including wired, wireless, and remote access

Deadline: We strongly recommend that you visit the ITS "How Do I?" web page and review the Student Quick Start Guide before choosing the technology you will use at USF.
