The Misericordia University IT Student Helpdesk is available 24x7x365, regardless if the University is officially open or closed. Misericordia has partnered with Pearson to provide after-hours support to all students outside the physical hours that the helpdesk will be open. The Physical IT Student Helpdesk, located in room 25 on the ground level of Mercy Hall at the Misericordia University main campus will augment their hours with this after-hours service to provide coverage. The IT Student Helpdesk will be open Monday through Friday from 9:00am to 6:00pm when the University is open to provide service to all students. Upon University closures and after-hours students will have the ability to contact our after-hours support for their technology needs. This service has been integrated, where by after-hours support will be able to assist the students in resolving their issues, or when necessary providing the case documentation to the physical helpdesk for further response when it is open. Misericordia will continue to tweak this solution over the fall semester with the focus on striving to best assist the student of our University community.
