Tech Commons in George Washington’s Gelman Library now houses walk-up support services from both the Division of Information Technology and Academic Technologies.

Located in Gelman Library B03, Tech Commons provides the GW community with a centralized and convenient location to receive assistance for technology needs, including computer tune-ups and maintenance; residence hall telephone, Internet and cable TV support; and mobile device configuration and support.

“The Division of IT strives to provide consistent, around-the-clock technology support that’s available whenever users need assistance, so that if a problem arises they can seek help without having to plan in advance to do so,” said David Steinour, chief information officer. “With the IT Support Center—which provides services 24 hours a day, seven days a week—and the addition of Tech Commons in Gelman Library— which provides more centralized walk-up support— we are working toward that goal.”

Tech Commons is open seven days a week. Click here for a list of hours and for more information.
