Need technical support? You can request help by visiting the Georgetown University Service Center Web portal. At the portal, you can contact the GU Service Center by phone or email, or by submitting a help request any time of day. You can also search our knowledge base, which has an extensive library of Georgetown service- and technology-related articles with answers to many common problems.

Account Managers

The UIS account managers are a single point of contact for University departments and offices to assist in developing and resolving unique or specialized technology issues. A few examples of how account managers might partner with customers include:

  • Escalating problems or service requests that have not been resolved by the help desk or desktop support teams
  • Investigating new technology solutions and engaging vendors for evaluation
  • Establishing services that are hosted in the cloud and/or by third parties
  • Communicating UIS initiatives to departments
  • Helping customers navigate uncertainty in technology issues

The account management team will continue to develop and adapt to best fit Georgetown’s needs. The current team and their respective accounts are:
