Computing Support

The Quick Summary:

CSEhelp (csehelp@cs.ucsd.edu) is the department's IT, computing, building infrastructure, and general support group.  For many issues, you may actually need to contact a different department or campus group, but when in doubt, you can always contact us first and if we can't take care of your issue we can at least triage, research, and point you in the right direction.

IT Support in CSE

Please note that while Facilities/Building Management is part of CSEhelp, this section deals mostly with technical/IT support. Some Facilities info: 

The technology/computing environment used by the people in the CSE department is a mixture of services managed by different groups on campus. "Where to get help" depends on your relationship to the CSE department and what you need help with.  "CSEhelp" is the in-department IT/infrastructure/Facilities group.  You can always treat CSEhelp as a primary go-to for support, and if we aren't the right people for your particular need, we will do our best to point you in the right direction.  Our email address is csehelp@cs.ucsd.edu.  This is the address of our trouble-ticket system, and is the best way to reach us.
