  • Laptop Repair Depot

    The Worcester State University Laptop Repair Depot’s highly experienced, professional, and industry-certified staff can troubleshoot—and fix—your computer hardware and software problems. If you purchased your computer though the Laptop Purchase Program, service is covered by the manufacturer’s warranty.

    Please note that we only repair computers that are dropped off at the depot. It typically takes us 24 to 48 hours to complete a repair.

  • Services

    If you purchased your computer though our Laptop Purchase Program, service is covered by the manufacturer’s warranty.

    If you’d like us to work on a computer not purchased through our program or after its warranty has expired, you’ll pay a $20 fee per incident, but this is only for software-related problems. We only accept payment through WSU OneCard Common Funds.

    We support:

    • Microsoft Windows Vista, 7, and 8, 10
    • Mac OS X
