Assisting/Troubleshooting Remotely

(Contact Tech Support before using above link and software)

With certain issues, we may be able to assist remotely and take control of your computer through the network. You must first call Ursinus Tech Support at the number above in order for this process to work. Do not use this link unless you have called and are currently speaking with someone from Tech Support on the phone. We will direct you on the proper procedure.

Important note on potential scam: Never allow anyone to access or control your computer unless you initiated the request by calling Ursinus Tech Support first. Someone looking to steal your information may call or email you to connect with them or ask you to click a link so they can assist you. Ursinus would never do this. This is a scam.
