Computer Purchasing and Repairs


HDS IT and Media Services provides computers for faculty and staff on campus for use in their offices. We do not sell computers for personal use. However, the Harvard Tech Hub offers significant discounts on both hardware and software for University affiliates.


HDS IT and Media Services staff cannot perform any service to student-owned computers, including laptops and PDAs. Insurance policies and other concerns prevent us from even troubleshooting the most basic problems with student-owned machines. However, Harvard has authorized Micros Northeast (Micros)* to provide laptop and desktop warranty and non-warranty repairs and upgrades for Apple, Lenovo or Dell computers that are personally owned by Harvard’s students, faculty, and staff; its depot is located in the basement of the Science Center. Please see Computer Repair Services on the Harvard University IT website for hours, rates, and other information.
