Make a complaint

If you feel like IT Services hasn't met their usual standards, you can raise a complaint to notify IT management of your experience.

If you think your call is taking too long to resolve, read about how IT Services prioritise calls and check they've not met the relevant target before filing a complaint.

  1. Email itservicedesk@st-andrews.ac.uk and include:
    • details of your experience
    • your call reference number, if available.
  2. Include 'complaint' in your email subject. 

You'll receive a written response that your complaint has been received and allocated to a member of IT management for action.
