Common Technical Assistance Topics (and Solutions!)


Personal Device Repair (Techs On-Site 12pm-6pm)

Do you have a computer or mobile 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 $9 bench fee is charged for initial review, and from there, $36/hour is charged for labor, plus additional costs for any parts as necessary. 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 12pm to 6pm. 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.


On-Campus Network Device Status and Registration

You can register additional devices on the network (like phones or game consoles) or check your on-campus bandwidth usage by reviewing your network device status.
