Hardware

Does your computer need fixing?

Students can bring their personal computers to the Student Diagnostic Center in Library 422, in the hallway between the Information Commons and the Reading Room between 9 am – 4 pm on weekdays. The Diagnostic Center can diagnose problems and put you on the path to getting them repaired.

Faculty and Staff can get help with their College-owned computers by getting in touch with the Technology Help Desk at helpdesk@mtholyoke.edu, calling extension 2600 or walking in to the Technology Help Desk in the Library Information Commons. We have Dell- and Apple-certified technicians on staff who can repair most problems on site and provide a loaner laptop if you need one.  LITS does not repair personally-owned faculty and staff computers. For recommended vendors, see personal tech purchases.

College-owned computers for faculty and staff

All LITS-issued faculty and staff desktop computers are replaced on a 4 – 5 year rotation plan according to our staff computer policy. Each year, LITS purchases standard supported desktop and laptop hardware  to replace computers that have reached the end of their rotation time on campus.

Faculty and staff members who need a computer that differs from our current hardware standards, should see nonstandard computer requests.

Personal computer discounts and recommendations

For information on technology purchasing discounts for Mount Holyoke College students, faculty and staff see personal tech purchases.
