What should you do if you are experiencing Wi-Fi issues? Who do you call if are having classroom technology issues? Not the Ghostbusters! When in doubt you can always search our knowledge base at technology.kenyon.edu or fill out a technology request.

Who do I contact?

If you are a faculty member having difficulty with technology in a classroom environment, please call 740-427-5711 for immediate classroom support. This number is shared by our classroom technology support staff so that one person is always on call during the academic day.

We do not have staff for evening support calls, but we make special arrangements to provide technology support for important campus events in the evenings — generally through the Campus Reservations System. For all other issues please call the Helpline at 740-427-5700.   

Please fill out this form with any account-related questions (ex: a staff member needs access to a permission group for a Shared Drive).

TOPdesk Self Service Portal > Technology Requests > Accounts & Security Request > Accounts & Security Request Form 

Our IT Accounts Management Team will get back to you as soon as possible. Please note that the process of creating and managing accounts and permissions is complex and the volume of changes is higher than ever. Our goal is to meet your needs within five business days.
