ITS provides complete support for university-owned computer equipment.
Support for personally owned computers is limited to basic troubleshooting, configuring the computer to access USF IT services (including passing Network Access Control for students in residence halls) and configuring Internet access from off-campus. If you need further help and your warranty has expired, you might want to contact a computer repair store.
For personal purchases, students, faculty, staff and alumni can get USF-negotiated discount prices on computers, personal electronics, software, services, and more using the USF eStore.
Faculty and staff leaving the university may purchase their USF computer. For details, please see the Computer Retirement Policy, section IV. Sale of Computers to Employees Leaving the University.
Retired Computer Donations
USF donates up to 150 retired desktop computers to charitable organizations each year. Other retired computers are sold to a reseller.
