Getting Help

The Service Desk is your first point of contact for BCIT IT related questions or problems. We will guide and assist you to resolve your BCIT computing needs.

How to contact us

We are primarily providing support via phone, chat, email and Zoom.

Information to have ready

  • Your full name and your BCIT ID (e.g. A01234567).
  • Be prepared to describe the problem clearly. What are you trying to accomplish? What exactly is happening (or not happening)? If your computer is displaying an error message, record the exact text of the message.
  • If possible, be at the location of the affected computer when you contact us.
  • If you are using a BCIT issued computer, the BCIT asset number (look for the BCIT sticker with a barcode).
