Distributed Technology Services

Beginning July 1, 2014, University students, faculty, and staff will be charged a $25 fee for repair to personally owned computers. Formerly a free service, the new charge is required to cover rising administrative costs.

The policy is unchanged for other costs.  Individuals will continue to be responsible for all costs associated with a repair – hardware, etc. 

Computer Repair Services, located in the Computer Center, is available to anyone affiliated with the University. Students must be currently enrolled or, during summer break, scheduled to return in the fall.

Payment is due at the time of drop off with ZipCard only.
