Get Support

Questions and issues with HiPerGator should be communicated to the UFIT Research Computing staff via the UFIT RC Support System, unless it concerns ResShield (FISMA) or HiPerGator-RV support. Support requests provide a traceable, permanent record of your issue and are systematically reviewed daily to ensure they are addressed as quickly as possible, whereas issues submitted via email can be easily lost or overlooked.
