The Office of Information Technology has opened a new "Solutions Center" on the 100 level of the Frist Campus Center. A ribbon-cutting ceremony took place Aug. 27.
The facility, which will operate from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays, is intended to be a one-stop shopping center for IT services. It brings together activities that formerly were located in separate areas on campus.
"Students, faculty and staff will be able to bring 'broken' computers to the center to be repaired (hard disks restored, viruses removed), purchase software, wireless cards and other computer accessories, get answers to IT questions, and sign up for phone services and TigerTV," said Betty Leydon, vice president for information technology and chief information officer. "There will also be a 'faculty courseware center' where faculty can get help with Blackboard and other technology tools."
