Welcome to the IT Service Point Virtual Queue

Join the Service Point queue

At certain times of the year we know there may be a wait to seek assistance at our walk up IT Service Points.

QLess will allow you to join a virtual queue and hold your place in line, while giving you the freedom to wait anywhere on campus, we'll send you an SMS when you're near the front of the queue - so you can start making your way to that Service Point.
