Telecom work requests

In trying to make a more streamlined process for moves, new hire adds and work requests, we have added an email inbox for the Telecommunications department.  If you fill out the Help Desk work requests, and email it to them, please copy Telecom as well at  This way we can be sure that the information is passed on to the departments it needs to be.

Any other requests for any work by the department can also be emailed to that address, and myself or Randy Bajan will receive the email directly and respond in a timely manner.  Please see below the list of items that you should contact Telecommunications for:

  • DSU Network cabling and connections for computers, printers, workstations
  • Telephone and voicemail issues or questions
  • Cable TV connections/access
  • Automated Attendant changes 

We do not want to make things more difficult, but we want to be sure that all of the needs of the campus community are met.  Thank you for your patience while we try to improve this process.


Congratulations to the Barnhorst Family

Assistant Professor Bradley Barnhorst and his wife Lisa are celebrating the birth of their second daughter, Celia Wilde Barnhorst, who was born on Wednesday, August 21.  She weighed 7 lbs. 9 oz. and was 20.5 “ long.  Lisa and Celia are both doing well.  Feel free to leave Brad a message at


UPDATE: Faculty and Staff parking permits

Due to the overwhelming response by Faculty and Staff on the new DeSales Parking website, our supply of the black faculty/staff permits has been depleted.  Please return to the website on or about September 11 to register your vehicle.  All faculty and staff with a sticker from the older parking system will still be valid. Thank you for your patience during this time!

New! Wireless printing and environmental impact monitoring

Now you can print wirelessly to any public computer on campus and monitor your environmental impact!

In order to become a greener campus, DeSales is launching Paper Cut software to all faculty, staff, and students starting in the Fall 2013 semester. Paper Cut shows you your printing habits and gives you the ability to print wirelessly to any public printer on campus. A link to Paper Cut will be provided on the MyDSU portal.

Page allotments:

  • Faculty and Staff = 1,000 pages
  • Students = 500 pages.

As you print, pages will be deducted from your balance. (No worries, if you go to a zero balance, the software will still continue to print.)

The following link will show you how to use Paper Cut software and print wirelessly:

For Faculty and Staff, the Paper Cut software will automatically be installed on your computer this Wednesday, August 21 whenever you log off/log on your computer.
