Support Availability

If you encounter issues using Zoom,  you may call the MedIT Service Desk for remote assistance during normal business hours.

Note: The MedIT Service Desk may not be able to resolve all issues. Zoom uses software that relies on the means by which it is connected to the internet and the computer on which it is installed.

Also, the flexibility afforded by Zoom means that users will be in various locations. Therefore, technicians will not be dispatched to support Zoom users. Further, support can only be offered to users who have been provided a computer through their respective universities; the MedIT Service Desk is unable to support home computers.
