Cardinal Computer Care Services for Students

The Help You Need (Not Just the Parts)

In too many cases, service ends when you buy your computer. Cardinal Computer Care Services ensures that service follows you to campus. CCCS makes service and support for your personal computer simple and efficient.


Here's What You Get:

For $55 per semester (less than most service providers charge for an hour of service) you get...

  • Operating system reloads
  • Hardware and Network Card installation
  • Ongoing support for software misconfiguration and failures
  • Unlimited phone support and troubleshooting
  • Experienced, trained, A+ certified technicians
  • Warranty support for Apple, Dell  and HP systems - all for $55 per semester. That's less than what many service providers charge for one-hour of labor!

CCCS is another way Computing & Desktop Support Services (CSDS) tries to make your life easier and ensure that you get the most out of your computing resources while at SUNY Plattsburgh.
