- Help Desk support for computing and technology issues including training and troubleshooting for supported hardware and software and responding to day-to-day questions and problems. They can also help you get your smartphone configured to access Union College email. You can reach the ITS Help Desk by calling x6400 or e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org or visiting the website at http://helpdesk.union.edu.
- Learning Technologies and Environments staff offer faculty assistance with understanding how to effectively utlize teaching-oriented technology and tools in ways that produce meaningful learning experiences for students. In addition, this group provides audio-visual services and support for technology-enhanced learning spaces and instructional facilities.

- Faculty and staff have access to Lynda.com, an online subscription library that teaches the latest software, creative, and business skills through high-quality instructional videos.

- Office computers are maintained, replaced and upgraded by ITS for faculty and staff. When faculty or academic staff members have multiple computers provided by the College, one computer is designated to be the “primary” office computer. This designation will be made by ITS in consultation with the faculty member, staff member or department chair as appropriate. This is the system that will be tracked for purpose of the replacement cycle.

In addition, each of the Minerva houses has a seminar room equipped with a limited amount of technology. Scheduling of the classrooms for routine, academic classes is handled by the Registrar's Office.
- The Faculty Computing Resource Center (FCRC), located in the Digital Studio on the second floor of Schaffer Library, provides faculty with an opportunity to investigate new software and hardware, with time being the only investment expended. The facility is also available for limited faculty production work.
