All SAIT students and employees can access technical support help. Here's how:
Submit a technical support request
For non-technical service requests, refer to our campus Helpline page.
The preferred method to get a hold of technical support when you are on campus is to submit a service ticket using the following button:
- For username and password, enter the same credentials you use for logging on to the computers. If you are a student, the username is your student ID without leading zeros and the password by default is your birthdate in the format YYMMDD.
- Click on New Issue at the top of the page.
- Enter the requested information in the green fields including a detailed explanation of the issue, room number and computer name if applicable. Please note your user information is already filled out in the ticket.
- Upload any related attachments by clicking on Add an Attachment (optional).
- Click Submit.
Once the ticket is submitted, it will be assigned to technical support within 15 minutes and a member of their team will contact you to resolve the issue.
Please note: this contact method is only available on campus at this time. If you are off campus and need technical assistance, please choose an alternate contact method.
