Emergency problems

During regular business hours, report computer related emergencies or outages to the Helpdesk. 

Outside normal Helpdesk hours: IS technicians are available for incidents of extreme emergency. If you believe the problem you are encountering warrants bringing a technician on campus (from as much as 15 miles away) you may call the IS emergency number (on campus 4541,  off campus 540-432-4541). You will be prompted to leave a voicemail and a text message will be sent to a member of Information Systems who will decide what type of emergency assistance is needed.
