Q1I am unable to login, what shall I do?

Q2: I am on a paying line, can the helpdesk call me back?

Q3I do not receive any email notifications from the EUI Helpdesk after opening and/or updating a ticket, what shall I do?

A3: Please check your Junk Mail / Anti-spam folder in your mailbox. If you find the mail there, highlight the EUI Helpdesk reply, right-click on it and select Junk > Never block sender then move the mail into your Inbox. If the mail is still missing, please report it to the helpdesk

 

Q4I am not a member of the EUI, can I login to the EUI Helpdesk portal?
