What can the IT Office help you with?

We can help with the installation of programs such Office 365, anti-virus software etc, the configuration of mobile devices to use eduroam, the installation of photocopier drivers on ds-print so that users can print documents from their own laptops / desktops etc.    If you break your laptop and it is out of warrantee, we can try replacing the screen, keyboard, hard drive etc.   We can replace hard drives with solid state drives or upgrade the memory for you.   We will endeavour to help you with any other IT enquiries or will hopefully be able to point you in the right direction.
