Support

Technology Consultations

Staff are encouraged to contact IT for a consultation so we can assess your specific requirements and make recommendations. To book your consultation, log a request through the IT Service Desk.

Hardware Support

Users with laptops that are leased/self-financed by Sheridan can receive support by visiting their local campus Service Desk Counter location. Service Desk technicians will determine whether the issue can be addressed on-site or if the laptop needs to be sent out for repair. A loaner laptop may be issued to you if you have a hardware issue that requires more time to address.
