Welcome to Samford!

computer labs Taking on a brand new chapter of life at college can be a nervous time. Parents embark from home with children in their car, but leave adults behind when their vehicle is unpacked. College is a fun time with lots of enjoyable experiences, but a technological mishap could derail a student's success.

This is where Samford Technology Services comes in. We stand at the ready, in case your computer cannot connect or the pesky malware bug hits when you least expect it. Even for potential hardware issues, our folks will run tests on the device and give you our best guess to what the problem could be, plus make recommendations for reliable repairs.

Headaches abound as part of the college process, but we think technology shouldn't be one of them.
