The Gardner-Webb Technology Services’ policy is to aid students with their Internet connection, anti-virus installation, virus removal, and installation of O365 free of charge. Due to the limited resources and manpower of the department, we are unable to offer repair service outside of this scope. Free assessments of issues may be offered if the schedules of technicians permit.
