With the start of the new school year, students will be coming in with a mind to improve their lives and future careers while dodging obstacles in the way. The iFix Station and book delivery services offered at the UNO Bookstore provide one-less-worry opportunity all students need.
The first new service offered at the UNO Bookstore is the iFix Station where repairs to tablets, iPhones and laptops can be made. The iFix station is located in the back part of the bookstore near the art supplies. This service has already been in use since Aug. 1.
“With the introduction of the iFix Omaha to the UNO campus we now offer a resource to fix phones screens for the many phones that get dropped by college students” sophomore Matthew Dooley said. “It’s a great third party screen replacement option.”
The UNO iFix kiosk can do multiple repairs on the latest iPhone, Samsung and LG smartphones, tablets and laptops. Standard repairs on these items are screen repair, battery replacement, button repair, water damage recovery, charging port repair, camera replacement, board-level micro solder restoration and general diagnostics.
Most repairs can be done in 30 minutes or less. Students are not the only ones who can use this; faculty and staff are also welcome to use it at any time. No reservations are needed to use the kiosk.
iFix UNO is also working to give back to the community by partnering up with the Maverick Food Pantry. If a student were to bring in a nonperishable item, he or she would receive a 5 percent discount, and if a student were to bring a pack of diapers that student would receive a 10 percent discount. Police, military and firefighters also receive a 5 percent discount.
The second service being offered at the UNO Bookstore is for those who live on campus and want to avoid the crowds that swarm the UNO Bookstore at the beginning of the school year.
“I feel as if this delivery system will prove to be a much more efficient way for those who live on campus.
to get their books and also help shorten the lines in the bookstore for those of us who do not live on campus,” Dooley said.
This service offers free 24 to 48 hour Residence Hall Delivery to students who reside in either Dodge or Pacific Campus. The Bookstore is also offering previous delivery methods such as in-store purchase, USPS ground delivery and in-store pick-up.
Eric Hager the manager at the UNO Bookstore, said the new book delivery service options are designed with all UNO students in mind.
“Multiple options improve the experience for on-campus students, students living in local community, non-traditional students and UNO alumni,” Hager said. “With this improved process, students are able to order books and gear online and their packages will be available in their respective Residence Hall mailroom the next school day.”
Hager said the new book delivery services has been made possible thanks to a collaboration between Mail Services, Dodge and Scott Housing and the Bookstore.
Both of these services make life simple and are perfect for both students and non-students alike. The UNO Bookstore welcome all students, staff, and faculty to utilize these new resources.
