Information Technology Help Desk

The College of Western Idaho (CWI) Information Technology Help Desk provides support for information technology equipment and services. The Help Desk is the first point of contact for prospective students, current students, and faculty and staff requiring assistance from the Department of Information Technology.

CWI employees needing assistance with their college owned desktop/laptop computers, or other electronic equipment will need to follow procedures for assistance. The goal of these procedures is to minimize exposure, prioritize effectively, and assign requests properly.
