Services for Students

The Information Technology Department provides limited support for student laptops. We are happy to provide technical assistance and advice to students concerning University-supported software and network configuration. Depending on the severity of the problem and whether the issue is hardware or software related, we may direct you to seek further assistance through your manufacturer or with CSSD Student Computing. The consultants are students at the University of Pittsburgh who can help with campus network connections, virus and spyware removal, software installation, data backups, and much more.
