Request Web Update
  • Please do not directly email or call our team members for help. If you are unable to submit a ServiceNow ticket, please email dgsd.tech@yale.edu
  • With our limited IT resources, the ServiceNow system allows the team to track and collaborate on support requests (ensuring nothing “falls off the radar”), identify problem software and hardware, and plan for future support needs.
  • We will answer your questions or resolve your issue if it is within our purview. For matters outside our scope, we will refer you to the appropriate resource at Yale University such as the ITS Help Desk.

Student Technology Collaborative (students only)

  • The Yale Student Technology Collaborative services include software and hardware support for student’s personal laptops. STC does not charge any money for labor at our center; however, you may need to purchase replacement or upgrade parts to allow us to complete repairs. You will always have the option to cancel the repair should you not wish to incur any cost. STC will also provide students with a loaner laptop for the duration of their repair with us, if needed. View our list of services or contact STC for more information

Emergency Support

  • The ITS Help Desk is now open 24 hours, 7 days a week. For assistance, please call 203-432-9000 or email helpdesk@yale.edu.
    • The answers to many technology-related questions and issues can also be found on this site in How-To articles on the ITS website.
  • To report an emergency DGSD technology issue, please call Eric Lin at 203-432-8330
