Student Device Support


Student Device Support (SDS) program is available to registered UFV students* who require software and hardware support of their personal devices such as mobile phones, laptops, and/or tablets.

The following services are provided:

  • Support of all UFV central-delivered products and services
  • PC and MAC hardware repairs (data backup and recovery as required)
  • Support of Android and iOS devices (based on the availability of hardware equipments)
  • Cell/tablet screen replacement
  • Data Recovery
  • Upgrades and installations of software
  • Virus and malware removal
  • Technical advice

As a UFV student* the electronics repair and technical support provided by our Student Technology Analysts is free.

NOTE: The cost of hardware/parts or software required to repair a student-owned device is the responsibility of the student. Any hardware procurement for repairs will be done through the IT Service Desk. Warranty and liability reasons prevent our Student Technology Analysts from completing repairs using new or used parts acquired directly by the student.

Our Student Technology Analysts are located within our IT Service Desk:

  • Building G on the Abbotsford campus (G131)
  • Building A on the CEP Campus (A0006)

Book an appointment and bring your device to the IT Service Desk during your appointment time and a Student Technology Analyst can assist you.
