Methods of obtaining help

The preferred method is via the request system.

Other methods available are by phone, direct email, or in person. Note where direct contact is made you may often still be advised to email the problem to the request system so it is seen by all the IT team, properly logged, tracked and responses clearly recorded.

Request System

An e-mail addressed to or gets sent to all the IT team as well as the request tracking system (several other addresses also generate tickets, e.g. for account extensions or security updates etc). The IT team then deal with the tickets and monitor the progress using the RT request tracking system. The IT team have run a ticket request system since August 1996. The current system from which the statistics below are compiled came into service on 8/11/2005.

Regulations for use of IT facilities in the Mathematical Institute

The Mathematical Institute's computer network is provided for the use of staff and students in the course of their work for the Department.

All use is subject to the University regulations.

Note that these rules may change from time to time. The following additional conditions apply to the use of equipment and network connections in the Department (regardless of ownership), and take precedence over the general University regulations.

Many of these points are equally applicable to using public computing locations such as Internet cafes or public libraries.
