About Us

CLAS IT is a collaboration of IT professionals that provides technical assistance for faculty and staff members in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences at UConn.

We offer a broad range of PC and Mac desktop support services, server infrastructure support, and technology consulting. Our primary goal is to compliment and augment services provided by ITS for researchers and instructors. CLAS IT also represents the interests of CLAS on a variety of technology-related committees.

Please don’t hesitate to contact us if we can be of assistance via email at or using our IT Portal.

CLAS has very diverse technical needs. Some departments or areas have dedicated IT support that help with the unique situations that exist across CLAS. You can view a list of these local IT contacts at the bottom of this page. Always feel free to reach out for support via the channel that works best for you.

If you are a CLAS student (graduate or undergraduate) seeking assistance with a personally owned computer, the best resource for you is likely to be ITS Information Technology Support Center. For home computer support please contact a local support service.
