Contract Support — On-call Services

OnCall Services provides fee-based computer support to individual faculty, staff, and students, as well as to University departments who need occasional or one-time support. Our staff will come to your campus office, or for a reduced fee you can bring your computer to our campus offices.

OnCall Services is a great way for departments to supplement existing support staff during vacations and other leaves, or to handle special projects. For small groups that don’t need full-time support, we can offer scheduled or pre-arranged occasional support in your office. For faculty, staff, and students, OnCall Services offers a cost-effective way to get expert computer assistance from highly knowledgeable technical staff who understand Stanford’s unique computing environment.


We offer a wide range of services, including:

  • Diagnose and troubleshoot almost any computer problem
  • Proactive system security checkups and updates
  • Setup and installation of new machines
  • Install and upgrade Mac and Windows operating systems
  • Install and troubleshoot Stanford-supported applications or licensed third-party applications (you supply the license)
  • Add peripherals such as printers or scanners
  • Help protect and backup important data
  • Remove prying spyware and contain virus outbreaks
  • PDA setup and configuration
  • Project work, such as computer upgrades or departmental moves

Getting started

Services can be requested via HelpSU.
