COVID-19 Update

To help protect the health and welfare of students, faculty, and staff amid the global COVID-19 pandemic, the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign has announced that all courses will be taught via alternative, online delivery approaches beginning March 23. In addition, faculty and staff have been asked to work remotely as much as possible. During this time, Engineering IT will continue to support The Grainger College of Engineering with a reduced on-campus presence.

In response to Gov. Pritzker's Executive Order for Illinois residents to 'shelter in place', all EWS Labs are currently closed until further notice.

Our physical Help Desk locations are closed for walk-in traffic until further notice. Remote assistance is available, or you can schedule an appointment for on-site support by calling (217) 333-1313 or emailing engrit-help [at]

For more information and available resources about working remotely, please visit the Keep TeachingKeep Learning, and Keep Working pages on our website.
