Our mission is to serve as the McGill community’s primary point of contact for IT-related support. Key services include the following:

  • IT Service Desk (supervised by Alex Bechalani, Golam Chowdhary and Wade Colborne) provides front-line support via phone and email for the McGill community on all centrally provided IT services, as well as walk-in support at the downtown and Macdonald campuses. Refer to the IT Service Desk service description for information on the types of support available.
  • Campus Printing (managed by Daniel Faucher) manages the uPrint service, which provides centralized printing, copying, and scanning capabilities throughout the university.
  • IT Enterprise Desktop Solutions (managed by Brian Arsenault) provides back-end systems administration for IT Services’ managed end-user computers. They evaluate new technologies and provide guidance, support, and best-practices throughout the community for end-user computing software, hardware, and systems administration.
  • IT Desktop Support (managed by Jean-Francois Lachance) provides onsite computer support and equipment lifecycle management for customer faculties and administrative units.
