New Nole TechList

The time has come for the new school year, even if it looks a little different than we expected. Information Technology Services (ITS) wants to ensure you have everything you need to live a connected life. That’s why we created the TechList. Here you will find all the tips, tricks and FAQs about the tech you need on campus. 

If the answer to your questions isn’t below, ITS is here to help. Contact the ITS Service Desk Monday-Friday from 8AM-6PM at 850-644-4357 or visit help.fsu.edu.
