The Information Technology Commons (or just the “Tech Commons” for short) is the division of the Office of Information Technology that deals directly with the campus community.

We are located in room 139 of the Library and offer a variety of services specific to the students of Fairmont State University.

From our Help Desk, we offer telephone, walk-in, and live chat support to assist the campus community.  To reach us, just call 367-4810. We also offer some evening and weekend hours. Please see the sidebar for current hours of operation.

The Help Desk staff can help remove malware from your personally owned computers, assist getting your devices (computers as well tablets and smartphones) connected to our network, and offer many other services.

Unfortunately, we do not have the facilities to repair your personal hardware, but we will assist you in diagnosing your problems and provide you with all your options.
