Due to the current Coronavirus measures, and the reduced staffing on-site at UEA, the IT Service Desk is now operating a voicemail only phone support service instead of having a physical presence in the Library.


We will still be reviewing your voicemails and responding from 9am – 5pm Monday to Friday and assist you with your queries as quickly as possible.
