Moving Checklist

1. Are you moving to an Off-campus location?

University resources may not be available in off-campus locations. It will likely require at least 30 days for telephones and/or Internet connectivity to be set up. Additional cabling may be required as well. If you or your department is moving to an off-campus location, please contact iTech as soon as you are made aware of the change. Please use one of the following options:

  • Contact the iTech Help Desk at 601.266.4357(HELP) and select option 5.
  • Submit a work order through the iTech website at https://apps.usm.edu/itech/workOrder/ and select "Other" from the problem drop down menu
