Contact Us
You can reach all of the Academic Technology Department staff members during regular business hours by dialing the School number, 312.427.2737 ext. 498   

Our goal is to try and answer every phone call, but it is sometimes physically impossible to do so.  If in the unlikely event that this happens to you, we highly encourage you to leave a voicemail. The voicemail is immediately sent to all of us regardless of where we are in the building, and someone will call you right back.
