*This fee ensures TSS will maintain the computer hardware by covering the cost of hardware repairs for one year from installation date. Payments will be processed as an Inter-Account to the “TSS Recycled Computer Program". In the event of a hardware issue, if a part(s) is more expensive than the service contract purchased, it is at the discretion of TSS to replace the defective part(s) or the entire computer. If the computer is replaced, the remainder of the initial service contract will be honored. TSS will not cover the cost of repairs that are caused by accidental damage. 

 Payments will be processed as an Inter-Account to the “TSS Recycled Computer Program".

 Desktop Support will run a series of tests on all computers to ensure proper working condition prior to their availability for purchase.  Due to their refurbished status, the computers may have cosmetic blemishes; however, this will not affect performance.    

This service is only for University use and is not available for personal purchase. The computers are still the property of the University and will be transferred onto the requesting departments inventory. 

 To request a computer, submit this online request.   A member of TSS will contact you to provide further information. If there are no computers available, you can be placed on a waiting list, and when a computer becomes available, TSS will contact you.

 If you need further assistance, please contact the IT Helpdesk at 270-745-7000, via chat http://www.wku.edu/it/chat, or by submitting a request online at http://www.wku.edu/it/helpdesk.
