Welcome To The IT Helpdesk

Introducing the UBC Self Service Portal

Our UBC Okanagan IT Helpdesk has moved!

The UBC IT Okanagan online Helpdesk has moved to the UBC Self Service Portal, along with the Integrated Services Centre (ISC) which provides Workday support. This will make it easier for staff and faculty in the Okanagan, and across UBC, to access a variety of UBC support services from a single website: UBC Self Service Portal

Use the Self Service Portal to get help for a variety of issues from getting started with Workday to requesting IT onboarding for a new Okanagan employee. Get the same local IT support you know, or be seamlessly connected to support teams across UBC from a single ticket.
