Welcome to the web home of CIS IT!
Our team supports the Department of Computer and Information Sciences' IT enterprise from the desktop to the datacenter. We provide end user support through the CIS Helpdesk, and we publish a variety of information on this web site to give our users self-service information to address their IT needs. Our staff is highly trained and qualified to provide support for the department's production, curriculum, research and development systems.
Please browse the navigation links on the left to locate documentation and instructions on our resources. If you cannot find what you are looking for on this site, please see the Contact Us section below.
The UAB CIS IT Student Guide should be the first stop for new CIS students. It contains an overview of CIS IT policies, instruction on how to obtain accounts, and basic instructions on how to use the services available to our students. This document is updated multiple times each year, so returning students would also benefit from re-reading it periodically.
The best way to reach the IT staff is by the CIS Helpdesk. Send an email to helpdesk (at) cis.uab.edu.
The IT staff office is located in CH140. However, due to the varying nature of the student class and work schedules, contacting us via the Helpdesk is the best way to get our attention.
