Carry-in Consulting is a fee-based service that the UITS Support Center provides to students, faculty, staff, and affiliates of Indiana University Bloomington. Carry-in Consulting handles software and operating system (OS) problems only, not hardware.


The Carry-in Consulting service at Indiana University Bloomington was retired on May 5, 2018, and new carry-in services will no longer be initiated.

For instructions for performing services currently provided by Carry-in Consulting, see ARCHIVED: Alternatives to the IUB Carry-in Consulting service.

Carry-in Consulting provides the following services:

  • OS installation: $85

    Initial charge includes the complete installation of an operating system and requested software, data backup up to 15 GB included. Any additional data backup beyond 15 GB is considered a separate service with a fee of $35 for up to 100 GB of data.

    Installation of Boot Camp (i.e., installing Windows on a Mac computer) is considered an OS installation, and as such is available under this service.

    You'll need to provide your own OS installation media.

    As part of this service, if your network access has been disabled due to a University Information Policy Office (UIPO) block, Carry-in Consulting can re-enable your DHCP access after performing the rebuild and completing all steps required by UIPO.

  • Data backup: $35

    Up to 100 GB of data is included per $35 charge. Data backups exceeding 100 GB are treated as multiple requests of the same service, and will be charged an additional $35 for every additional 100 GB or portion thereof.

    Data may be burned to a CD/DVD you provide, transferred to an external drive you provide, or stored on the Support Center storage servers for a period not exceeding 30 days.

  • Other software services: starting at $35

    Services that do not fall under the above categories are subject to a minimum charge of $35. This fee includes up to five items; additional services may be requested for $5 per item. Examples of these services include administrator password resets (see Set or reset a Windows administrator password), software/driver installation, and network/security setup.

All work is performed at the Support Center walk-in office in the Learning Commons in the Herman B Wells Library. Service fees are due in full upon completion of service; see ARCHIVED: Accepted payment methods at the IUB Support Center Learning Commons walk-in location

You must bring your computer to the Support Center office; pick-up service is not available. For laptops, the power cord is required at check-in for all services. The service is first-come, first-served with an average turnaround time of two business days. During heavy volume periods (e.g., virus outbreaks, move-in week, and the first two weeks of the fall semester), the average turnaround time is three or more business days.
