All Georgetown Law Center technology support activities are handled by the Information Systems Technology Service Desk (SD). The SD serves as the Single Point of Contact (SPOC) for all end-users (faculty/students/staff) who need help with any technology issues or requests.

Please submit a Service Desk Request via email at, phone 202-662-9284, self service portal or visit us in person at McDonough Hall – Room 152 (Please make an appointment for in person technology needs) to obtain assistance.

Upon submission of your request, you will receive an automated email confirmation with a ticket number. You may also receive additional update emails as we work to complete your request. Once your ticket is closed you will receive another email, as our technicians have been instructed to confirm ticket completion with the customer prior to closing it.

In order to receive real-time feedback from our customers, 10% of the tickets closed will generate a link to a customer survey where you can comment on the quality and caliber of the service received.

Please do not hesitate to email if you feel that your expectations have not been met.
