Incident management system: Footprints



We have changed the service desk software that we use to deal with IT queries.

Please email or call us on +44 (0)1904 323838 with any IT queries. Issues will normally be handled Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm.

When you submit an issue, you will receive an automatic email containing a unique issue number to let you know it has been received. You will then receive further emails to request more information and/or give you the answer to your question. Staff may also contact you by phone.

We are in the process of transferring our Knowledge Base articles from Footprints to the new service desk tool.
