Techs In A Sec

Your computer may need a service which the CUIT Service Desk Walk-In Center does not provide

There are some services which the CUIT Service Desk Walk-In Center cannot provide. Examples of this would include work on hardware or the reformatting of your hard disk due to a virus infection. In these cases, it will be necessary for you to get support from your vendor, if your system is under warranty, or an outside source.

If you bring your laptop to the CUIT Service Desk Walk-In Center in 202 Philosophy Hall and it is determined that your system needs support we do not provide, the Service Desk consultant will give you an evaluation of the problem and advise you as to what steps you will need to take when dealing with an outside sources. 

You may be provided a flyer which may have written comments from the consultant. This flyer you should keep as it can be used to get a 10% discount on services. 

We recommend that you contact Techs in a Sec at 1-866-NYC-TECH.
