Tech Commons Portal

The Division of Information Technology (IT) is transforming its support options to provide more mobile and flexible technology support to the GW community. Beginning in June, the Tech Commons support center will no longer be located on the lower level of Gelman Library as the Division of IT works to focus staffing resources and provide more personalized service to the GW community. Additional in-person support options will be announced over the summer and be in place for beginning of the fall 2017 semester. 

Please see the information below on where you can find frequently requested IT support services.
