The Personal Computing Device Repair service provides limited software and hardware support for personally owned network computing devices which have performance or security issues that inhibit the use of the University network or other critical electronic services (e.g. OnCourse Learning Management Service). These devices can also be quarantined on the University network based on a known vulnerability for security purposes. The service improves the performance of the campus security program by mitigating risks for the university’s overall security posture and for individuals utilizing the campus network services. This service is offered because the University networks are considered to be critical for those living in the residence halls (24/7 availability) and enables the University to maintain a secure and stable computing environment for all those utilizing the network.
