University of Exeter IT - Advice, Guidance and Support

The Digital Hub

The University of Exeter IT Department’s Digital Hub is loaded with help, guidance and advice. It is your place to go, to help you master and adapt to new and existing tools, working with the available technology in the best way possible. The hub is updated with new guides and content every week.

Here are some of the things you can do:

Get some time talking directly to an expert
Book dedicated 1-2-1 support wherever you are with 10 minute surgery sessions for those times when you just need to know something specific. Or Super User sessions for 45 minutes that provide more detailed overviews and cover topics that you agree in advance. Book here.


 Learn something new in the time it takes to drink a coffee.
The Digital Transformation team, along with other experts, will be developing and hosting a series of Espresso sessions. These will be available to view initially online, through the Digital Hub and eventually as live drop-in sessions at the Digital Hub in the Forum on campus.

Have a look at the Espresso training sessions menu to see what is on offer.
