Computer HelpDesk

The Computer HelpDesk is the first point of contact for all technical issues involving Pellissippi State computers, networks, phones and software. Our Computer HelpDesk technicians strive to understand the problem, find the root cause and provide the best solution. If your problem requires deeper technical analysis, a service ticket will be created to ensure your problem is elevated to the right person and resolved in a timely manner.

The best way to get immediate help is to call 865-694-6537. Email should be used for issues that are less time sensitive.
