Statistical Science IT Support

All faculty, staff and graduate students in Trinity College of Arts & Sciences receive technology support from a designed team within Trinity Technology Services. For Statistical Science, we are supported by the Science Drive IT Team.

The Science Drive IT Service Desk was created to give users access to a live support technician for resolution of emergency computing issues, inquire about purchasing equipment, request loaner equipment, and to request guidance/information with any and all general computing-related issues with supported hardware and operating systems. You are required to submit a help request form to obtain support.
