Request Assistance

1. Fill out and submit a Footprint Request.

2. E-mail the Help Desk at

3. Chat On-line with a Help Desk Analyst

It is called a "Remote Program" because Help Desk Analysts, ONLY with the permission of you, the customer, can remotely view the desktop you are viewing and share control of the keyboard and mouse in order to guide you to solve your issue. This Live & Hands-On troubleshooting approach is provided by the ITS Help Desk. The technology used to allow this service is called Bomgar: Secure Remote Support Software.

4. Visit the Help Desk in the Fred Frey Computing Services Center, in the center of the first floor.

  • Fred Frey is located a few streets to the side of Tureaud Hall, right next to the LSU Dairy Store across Tower Drive. (Or, follow Tower Drive south from the Union!) For the location in Google maps, click here.
