Providing Information

If you are having a problem, please describe it in as much detail as possible. Questions like “Why doesn’t the Internet work?” are impossible to answer. If you are having a particular problem, please describe it in the best details you can. If you are sending information to a particular person, please specify that person in your message.


If you are sending email from a non UCA account please identify yourself. Are you a student? Do you work here? Do you live in the dorms? If we cannot tell who sent the message it will be more difficult to provide assistance. Anonymous emails may not receive a response.
