Protecting the health, safety and well-being of our campus community is our first priority. We appreciate your understanding.

Who can service my computer?

While you’re off-campus and/or working remotely, you can send your computer to the appropriate vendor. Repairs, however, may take much longer than usual. Due to the very long wait times, you might want to hold onto your damaged machine if at all possible until normal operations resume.

Pointers on vendor servicing

  • Ascertain what, if any, policies your department or school has for off-campus computer service. Is it prohibited? Are there security requirements?
  • Determine your warranty coverage and status by checking the vendor links.
  • In most instances, the vendor will mail you a box to send the computer to its repair center. You may incur shipping charges.

Have additional questions?

Please contact the ITS Service Desk for chat, phone (919-962-HELP) and web support.
