Support me portal

Upgraded SupportMe Overview

The SupportMe self-service portal was upgraded on Friday 5th April, the following help page explains how to use the new portal. 

SupportMe is a self-service portal for raising support calls e.g. 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 'Request Estates Support' link Illustrative image  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 will receive a confirmation email with a call reference number to your university email account.

If you are unable to use the online service or visit us in person then please email the Support and Information Zone at or phone the SIZ on (01243 81) 6222
