Need Tech Assistance? 

Residential Technology Assistance (RTA) is available to Cougs in residence halls and WSU-owned apartments. We can troubleshoot accessing the internet and TV streaming, using educational technology, making the most of my.wsu.edu, printing, and other common tech issues. Submit a ticket to request help from RTA.

ResNet Support Phone #: 509-335-1586 - This is only answered during normal business hours. If you go to voicemail, you must leave a message including your name (include how to spell your name), your building and room/unit number and a brief description of the problem. The voicemail will create a help desk ticket. Note that support is only offered Monday thru Friday from 8 AM to 5 PM.

You may need to contact an outside vendor for hardware repair, upgrades, and other major issues..
