Student Tech Support

Student Technology Support (STS) is a free service for Emory students providing technical support and assistance for student-owned devices.

STS operates on a first-come, first-serve basis. Most support requests, such as EmoryUnplugged wireless setups or game console registrations, can be handled relatively quickly. More complicated issues, such as virus and/or spyware removal, may require a computer to be checked-in for repair.

Students will need to have their Emory Student IDs for verification when visiting us for assistance or picking up a computer.

  • Configure EmoryUnplugged connectivity on capable laptops and personal devices
  • Install or reinstall operating systems
  • Scan for and remove computer viruses and other types of malware
  • Install a suite of anti-spyware solutions to combat future infections
  • Assist with general operating system troubleshooting
  • Install the latest hardware drivers for your machine
  • Uninstall programs that pose security risks to your computer, including P2P software
  • Diagnose hardware problems and assist with repairs
  • Assist most devices not compatible with EmoryUnplugged that are compatible with EmoryGuest

  • Windows* 7 and up
  • macOS* 10.11 and higher
  • Wireless setup for Linux, Android, and Apple iOS
  • Game consoles, eReaders, and others for wireless use in residence halls 
  • Any device not listed, STS will attempt to help, but cannot guarantee service
    *STS will only work on legitimate finished operating systems (no pirated copies or beta builds).

All machines that are going to be dropped off/checked-in require a power cord.

Students are responsible for backing up their data before devices are brought in. STS is not responsible for any data loss. Please ask us if you need assistance with backing up data.

For check-ins: STS strives to remediate your computer within two to three business days. Serious issues may take longer.
