Media & IT Support

Media & IT Support Help Desk











All teaching rooms should have a telephone permanently installed. If for any reason any equipment should fail during a lecture, Media & IT Support can be contacted on the Teaching Room helpline number 4000 for an immediate response. The Media and IT support technicians carry mobile telephones, and can therefore respond to calls as quickly as possible, usually within minutes.

The 4000 helpline number can also be found on the yellow stickers on every piece of our equipment, and on the notices which have been put up in all of the centrally bookable teaching rooms.

This number can also be used to report any other problems within teaching rooms such as heating, lighting, furniture, etc. Media & IT Support operates this lecture Room Helpline for the university. Our reception staff will then pass on any reports of problems to the relevant department eg. Information System Services, Media and IT support and Estates Services, etc who will then respond as they see fit.
