ICT Support Group (ICTSG)

ICT support

All requests for IT support in the Dunedin School of Medicine should be handled in the following way: (Some research units may have alternative arrangements)

During office hours:

  • Email (preferred contact method)
  • Ring the ICTSG on the University extension 4137
  • Leave a message if you get the voicemail
  • If it is urgent and you have not contacted anyone or have had no response, then contact your departmental administrator - they will be able to help track one of us down

After hours:

  • The University ITS HelpDesk has longer hours depending on student demand
  • Try phoning University extension 8888 or emailing

University-wide ITS notices

The ITS Service Desk website has a notices section where planned and current service outages/issues are noted. If you are experiencing a problem with a central service (e.g. access to the network, internet, email, PIMS, Blackboard, etc), then check the notices before you call.

Once the Service Desk is aware of such a problem, information about it (including an ETA for fixing it, if known) will be put there.

Lecture theatre resources

The ICT Support Group manages the Hospital Lecture Theatre complex. These facilities are used by the university's Division of Health Sciences and the Dunedin Hospital.
