In Response to COVID-19 . . .

During these challenging times, ITS is committed to supporting each member of the university community. We realize that many questions will surface when faced with how and what tools are available to remain effective and progressive as a faculty, staff or student. We are providing resources that will help to answer those questions. We have created a distinguishing page for solutions based on your affiliation with the university.


New Chat Feature!

chat
At the ITS Service Desk we are always looking for new and innovative ways to assist our clients. We have implemented a new chat feature on all of our main navigational pages to better assist with technical issues remotely. You will see the chat window floating on the right bottom portion of the page. If available, this chat feature will put you in direct contact with a member of the Service Desk to assist you. Once the chat is completed, a Service Desk ticket will be created and, if needed, will be escalated to a team that can assist. Chat hours are 8:00 am - 7:00 pm, Monday – Friday. We look forward to hearing from you.


Technology — it's a wonderful thing!

umTech is your starting point for Information Technology Services here at the UofM. We're here because technology is such a huge part of the college experience; No matter what your comfort level is with using advanced technologies, umTech will help you get up to speed. We want you to be able to learn, teach, work, and stay connected through technology at the University of Memphis.

We answer your calls, visit staff and faculty offices, meet with you online or in our office to discuss technology. We also fix problems and host training sessions that could improve your performance and productivity. We will help you wrap your brain around the most innovative campus tools. With our help, you will be using technology to create, learn, explore, teach, and conduct business.

OneDrive Available to All UofM Employees

Did You Know OneDrive, Microsoft’s cloud storage service, is available for all UofM employees? This service provides a solution for sharing documents with internal and external (non-UofM) colleagues while working on research, class projects or administrative collaboration. OneDrive has 5TB (terabytes) of available storage space. See IT6005 Campus Data Security Policy and the ITS Data Storage Guidelines for usage guidelines. To access OneDrive, visit the webmail site or sign into the OneDrive site and log in using your email and password. Look for the App Launcher (nine tiles in a square) at the upper left of the screen, near the Office 365 logo. Select OneDrive and let the collaboration begin. For more information about OneDrive see our OneDrive Page.

Faculty and staff also can place a service request with their LSP (local service provider) to install and link OneDrive to their desktop. Synching all of your files to your OneDrive provides a safe backup that can be accessed online.
