Quick Help

How do I request help?

If you wish to submit a Help Request, please visit our Help Request Form. If you are having issues using the web form, or wish to speak with a member of the Helpdesk staff, you can call the FAA Systems Helpdesk at 229-4582, or ext 4582 while on campus, during the normal business hours. You can also contact the Helpdesk by emailing faa-help@uwm.edu.

If you have a problem that requires immediate help, you can call the work cell numbers located on the About Us page. Please note that you MUST leave a message if it goes to voicemail, or we will not know that you need help.

What should I do if I get a Virus Notification?

Unfortunately, many virus alerts are actually fake alerts that would infect your computer if you click on any of the buttons on the alert window. For this reason, you should not click anything after receiving a virus alert, and immediately call the Help Desk at x4582.

How do I get Hyperion?

If you need to use either the Hyperion Client Software, or the Query Library (IRWC Internet Explorer plugin), please follow these steps:
