The User Services Department provides technical service & support for our classrooms, libraries, common learning areas, and faculty & staff offices. We also provide training in the use of educational & classroom technology. The User Services is represented on each campus, and is a division of the University Technology Services (UTS).

If you encounter any difficulty with the classroom technology please notify us @ helpdesk@nieu.edu and we will resolve the issue promptly.

Faculty Staff Services

In addition to our standard support services we partner with faculty and staff to deliver customized technology solutions. We work collaboratively with each department to help facilitate the use of technology resources. We also assist with the exploration of new ideas and ways to implement technology solutions to enhance the services we deliver to the classroom and college support areas.

We also support a number of initiatives to support faculty and staff. Our goal is to ensure a seamless delivery of technical services to compliment each division of the college.

Special Events

We provide equipment and support for campus events, meetings, conferences & functions.

We ask that you contact your campus representative to review event specifications, support requirements, and any specific concerns. Typically we require 48 hour notice for most events, with more lead time required for larger events to accommodate scheduling as well as making sure the necessary resources are in place.

Some examples of event services:

  • PA system setup
  • Wireless Microphone setup
