Support Me

SupportMe Overview


SupportMe is a self-service portal for logging calls e.g. logging IT Support calls, reporting lost property, requesting library books to be sent cross-campus for you etc.

Calls can also be logged to Estate Management via the 'Estates' link on the SupportMe home page, e.g. for reporting issues with power sockets, heating, plumbing etc.  For help on logging calls for Estates, click HERE.

Once your call is logged it will be forwarded to the appropriate team, and you'll receive a confirmation email with a call reference number to your university account.

SupportMe also shows service status, and the University's Twitter feeds, as well as providing a link to the University's Help Website.

If you are unable to use the online service or visit us in person, then please email the SIZ at help@chi.ac.uk or phone the SIZ on (01243 81) 6222
