Faculty/Staff Help Center

The Office of Technology Services (OTS) Faculty/Staff Help Center is the primary point-of-contact for computing questions and technology issue resolution for Towson University faculty and staff. If you are a student, please contact Student Computing Services for assistance.

The Faculty/Staff Help Center can resolve more than 60% of problems and issues during the first telephone call. When necessary, the staff will arrange for an office visit by a technician using our Triage and Service prioritization (PDF).
