Technology Support Center (TSC)


The Technology Support Center (TSC) assists all members of the UMBC community with their technology questions and requests. Many questions can be answered over the phone during your initial call. Others may require the submission of a Request Ticket, and, if necessary, a DoIT employee may be sent to your campus location for on-site assistance.
