Award-Winning Technology Service Center

Whether your computer has stopped turning on, or you think you may have a virus, the certified technicians at the University of Arizona BookStores' award-winning Technology Service Center are here to help.

What we do:

Our services range from hardware repairs, data migration, hardware upgrades, software troubleshooting, plus much more!

We are ACMT (Apple Certified Mac Technicians) as well as a Dell & Safeware Authorized service hub. We can also perform basic software troubleshooting for most types of PC's.

The most common repairs we see are busted LCD screens, liquid damage, keyboard & trackpad malfunctions, and battery replacements.

Most repairs may even be done for little to no charge if they are covered under warranty. If you are curious to know if your device is covered under warranty, check the following links:

Otherwise, we recommend checking out the support offered directly from your system's manufacturer.

We are able to perform basic software troubleshooting for non-Apple or Dell systems for a cost but unable to order replacement parts at this time. For further software troubleshooting, we recommend contacting UITS 24/7 support.
