Technical Support Contacts

For troubleshooting the little problems and glitches that happen on faculty and adjunct computers and in computer labs your department technician (for those departments that have one) is your first line of defense and probably the most handy. These may be software or hardware problems.

If you have no immediate technical support, or if your technician cannot remedy a problem, each school has specialists available to help, as follows:

Austin W. Marxe School of Public and International Affairs:
(646) 660-6774

Weissman School of Arts & Sciences:
(646) 312-3886

Zicklin School of Business:
(646) 312-3050

BCTC Help Desk: 646-312-1010

For widespread problems (e.g., the entire office has no internet or email) call the BCTC(The Baruch Computing and Technology Center) Help Desk (646-312-1010). Such problems involve college networks and servers that are in the hands of BCTC. Also call the Help Desk about specific problems with accessing your Lotus email (e.g., logon is rejected). Finally, by all means call the Help Desk if—after following the instructions above—you are unable to reach someone to help you.

BCTC provides access to information and communication technologies for students, faculty, and staff throughout the Baruch community. Campus wide support of telephony, videoconferencing, computer networking communication systems, campus electronic mail, campus file servers, distance learning, and media services equipment distribution are included in the services of the BCTC.
