Please contact Information Technology Services Help Desk at 850.474.2075.

Division of Academic Engagement and Student Affairs staff who are experiencing immediate user access or desktop issues should first connect with the ITS Help Desk for triage and support. Although most issues are resolved during the initial contact, it may be necessary to escalate or assign your issue to DAESA Technology Support Services for further assistance via a service desk ticket. 

Once an issue is elevated to the DAESA Technology Support Services Office, you will receive additional communication from a Local Support Provider (LSP) to further troubleshoot your issue remotely or to schedule an appointment to access the equipment. 

The Office of Design and Communication (ODC) supports the DAESA’s goals through strategic communication.

DAESA staff who are ready to begin a marketing, design, or communication-related project should submit a ticket on the ODC Jira Service Desk.

For step-by-step instructions on how to submit a ticket, please visit the Submitting an ODC project request Confluence page. Once ODC has received your request, they will be in touch via the Jira ticket to discuss any project-specific next steps.
