 Tech CYte Service Center

Now Open!

The Computer Service Center has moved to Tech Cyte in the ISU Book Store and is now open! We appreciate your patience and understanding during this unprecedented time. We are currently servicing Dell computers, but are unable service Apple devices in-house. If you need service for an Apple device that is under warranty, please contact Apple directly. For out of warranty Apple devices, you can visit Ames Tech Repair in the ISU Book Store for a quote.
