UMO TSS Support Levels

All Students

We will help troubleshoot connectivity issues with core UMO services (Gmail, Moodle, Self-Service, and the MyUMO portal). We will also assist with forgotten passwords and usernames.

We do not provide walk-in support for non-resident students.

Resident Students Only

We will remove spyware or viruses free of charge. In some cases, the computer may need to be reformatted. In this case, the student will be responsible for providing operating system discs to load back onto the computer. The UMO TSS department will backup documents for students, but is not responsible for any music, movies, or pictures lost during the reformat. It is the student’s responsibility to back up items not related to UMO coursework.

We will fix hardware-related problems with no labor cost to the student, however the student must provide parts to fix the problem. UMO TSS will assist the student in finding a source for the part.


We will completely maintain University-owned computers in offices, classrooms, and labs.

We will completely maintain University-owned printers, including toner and ink.

We do not provide walk-in support for personal faculty/staff computers.

PLEASE NOTE: We do not provide support for computers with operating systems older than Windows 7 or Mac OS X 10.4.
