Students depend on the helpdesk for assistance with personal laptops, both Windows and Macintosh. Walk-in assistance includes setup and troubleshooting for the LSU wireless network, antivirus software, Student Print Center access, and exam software.

Hours and Contact Information

Support for Faculty & Staff Personally Owned Computers

The Law Center IT Department offers limited support of faculty and staff personally owned computers and cell phones as a means of supporting the business functions of the Law Center.

For computers running the current and previous 2 major versions of Microsoft and Apple operating systems, assistance with the following is available:

  • Connection to the LSU wireless network
  • Activation of Microsoft Office provided by the University
  • Configuration of mail programs, e.g., Microsoft Outlook or Apple Mail, to connect to the University email server
  • Installation of University provided antivirus software
  • Creating a link to the Law Center file server (https://lawsrv1.law.lsu.edu)

For smartphones and tablets (iPhone/iPad, Android, Windows), we offer assistance in connecting to the LSU wireless network and the Law Center email server. Because phone models and software vary greatly, it is possible we may not be able to connect all devices. It should be possible to connect recent models running current versions of Apple’s iOS or Google’s Android.

The Law Center does not provide “full service” computer repair and maintenance on personally owned devices. For problems such as failing or broken hardware (keyboards, disks, screens, etc.), virus/malware detection and removal, performance issues, general maintenance, installation and updating, we encourage colleagues to consult any of a large number of local businesses offering diagnostic and repair services.
