Need Tech Assistance? Contact an RTA!

Residential Technology Assistants (RTAs) are student staff who help out residence hall and WSU-owned apartments residents with all things tech. RTAs can troubleshoot accessing the internet and TV streaming, using educational technology, making the most of my.wsu.edu, printing, and other common tech issues. Submit a ticket to request help from an RTA.

You may need to contact an outside vendor for hardware repair, upgrades, and other major issues.

Interested in becoming an RTA? We're hiring for the 2021-22 academic year.
