Common Questions

I live off campus. Can I still book an onsite appointment with Tech Squad?
Tech Squad onsite services are available to all students at UB. Off-campus locations are not serviced, but you are welcome to book an appointment to meet at our location in Silverman Library (inside Capen Hall).

I would like to meet with Tech Squad in person. Do I have to book an appointment to do this?
Yes, due to COVID-19 restrictions Tech Squad consultations are by appointment, and only at their location in Silverman Library.

My computer screen is cracked. Can Tech Squad repair this for me?
If you are having trouble with hardware, Tech Squad would be happy to troubleshoot and provide consultation in regards to the issue. However, Tech Squad will not repair broken/damaged hardware.
