During the summer and earlier this year, we’ve welcomed five new people to the User Service & Support (USS) team. You may have already met them if you’ve visited the Help Desk or requested support for something. But If you’ve not had the chance to meet them yet, please feel free to visit them on the first floor of Sprague.
