On-Campus Repairs for Personal Computers Available

Tuesday 03/11/2014

You won’t find any black and white VW Beetles parked out front, but when you step inside Florida State University’s Shaw building, a team of computer repair technicians are at the ready to help you troubleshoot your computer woes.

Information Technology Services (ITS) is pleased to introduce the Computer Repair Center, an on-campus service that provides repairs for all employee- and student-owned computers and software support for tablets and mobile devices as well as FSU-owned devices.

Now, you no longer have to drive across town to get your computer fixed. The Computer Repair Center (CRC) provides both hardware and software support for personal devices. Whether it’s a cracked screen, failed hard drive, water damage or particularly nasty virus, factory-certified technicians at the CRC can help fix the problem. If your device is still covered by a manufacturer’s warranty, you may be eligible for repairs at no cost to you. Out-of-warranty devices are offered at competitive prices.

Students receive computer support and repairs at a discounted rate. In addition to a free consultation to begin troubleshooting the problem, all repairs for Florida State students are provided at deeply discounted prices, thanks to funding from the Student Technology Fee.

The on-campus location makes it convenient to drop off your computer for repairs while you’re at work or school. A quick turnaround time means that some issues can be resolved the same day, so you won’t be without your technology lifeline for long.

“We understand the importance of technology in everyone’s daily lives,” explains ITS Director Ken Johnson. “We want to create a service that supports the expanding use of technology and helps people be successful in both work and school.”

Getting an appointment at the CRC is easy. Just call 850-644-HELP. Walk-in support is also available on a first-come, first-served basis by visiting the CRC, located in the Shaw building at 644 W Call Street (8 a.m. – 5 p.m. M-F).
