Service Portal

New Service Portal for all your IT needs

Today, we launch a new ‘Service Portal’ for all your IT needs.   

You can now report a problem (log a fault), make a request or submit an enquiry. Once you’ve raised your request, you can easily track its progress on the ‘Service Portal’.

It can be accessed from a shortcut on any university computer desktop (named Service Portal) or via the web link .

You can access the ‘Service Portal’ from anywhere, using your computer, laptop, tablet or phone, simply through the weblink and logging on using your University of Salford email address and password (the same password you use to log into any University computer).

Please take a few minutes to familiarise yourself with the changes and the frequently asked questions

The previous Digital IT system ‘LANDesk’ has been retired and you can no longer report any new faults or raise requests on this system. Any existing enquiries already raised through LANDesk will be progressed to completion by Digital IT.  

Please note: you may continue to report problems and make requests to the Digital IT Service via phone ext.52444 or via email
