Common Technical Assistance Topics (and Solutions!)

Personal Device Repair (Techs On-Site Mon-Fri 8AM-5PM)

Do you have a computer or device that needs to be fixed? Personal device repair drop-off and pick-up service is available any time walk-in service is available.

A $18 bench fee is charged for initial review, and if the repair is approved, the $18 fee is waived in favor of a flat $60 charge for the labor needed to complete the repair, plus additional costs for any parts as necessary. If the repair is declined, the $18 bench fee still applies. Charges are billed to your CMU account. For more thorough information regarding the nature of any potential repair, technicians are available on-site Monday through Friday from 8AM to 5PM. Please note, Help Desk employees and on-site Technical Services technicians will help facilitate the drop-off repair service, but are not equipped to provide extensive repair services while you wait.
