Need help? The IT Help Desk provides a single point of contact for the technology needs of Mercer employees and students. We provide phone, email, and walk-in support for a variety of technology services such as:

  • Wired/wireless network access
  • Access to Mercer websites (MyMercer, Mercer email, Canvas...)
  • Computer recommendations
  • Problem evaluation

Per our Student Computer Repair Policy, we are unable to provide hardware repairs, virus removals, or operating system installations.

In order to maintain a high level of customer service and keep the phones available for urgent requests/issues, we ask that you use the following reporting guidelines:

  • Urgent requests/issues - Call and stay on the line to speak to a technician.
  • Non-urgent requests/issues - Submit via the IT Self-Service Portal. Submissions are handled in the order in which they are received.
