Help & self-service resources
We hold regular drop-in sessions where you can come and meet members of the RITS team for hands-on support.
We can provide free advice and consultancy to help you to make the best use of IT when managing or carrying out research. We'd also like your feedback on our services. We're here to help!
Sign up to the RITS mailing list to keep up to date with events, training courses and news about our services.

Where possible, please contact us using a UCL email address.
If you are not sure which of our services you need, or you have a general query related to research IT, email email@example.com and we'll do our best to help you find a solution to your problem.
You can also contact our teams directly for help and advice with these services:
- How do I get an account for one of the research computing platforms (e.g. Legion)?
We now have a single simplified application process for all of our research computing platforms. You can find more information and access the account application form on our Account Services guide on the research computing wiki.
If you are a student or postdoctoral researcher, your application must be approved by a permanent member of staff (normally your supervisor or PI). You will need to enter the username of this sponsor in the application form, and an email will be sent to this person asking them to approve the application before the account can be created.
Permanent members of staff do not need a sponsor, but will also receive an email asking them to approve the application before the account can be created.
