Student Drop-Off Service

Students with computer issues that will take more than 30 minutes to resolve are encouraged to drop off their machines at DoIT Tech Support Central. A team of technicians will be able to assist with virus/spyware removal, operating system installs/repairs, as well as diagnosing more advanced hardware issues. All registered students are eligible to drop off their personal desktop or laptop computers at no extra charge since service is provided as part of the University's Technology Fee. If you are not sure if your device has one of these types of issues please schedule an appointment at a Tech Station for more information. 

Personal Device Hardware Repair Services

DoIT Tech Support Central offers hardware diagnostic services but does not perform hardware repair. Should Customer Engagement & Support diagnose any hardware issues, it is the responsibility of the student to contact an outside vendor for out-of-warranty repairs (e.g. Geek Squad, EasyTech, etc.) or their computer's manufacturer for repairs under warranty.
