Mission Statement:


Our mission as a student organization is to help bridge the Digital Divide in the Philadelphia area through community service that focuses on technology. Our members refurbish and donate computers and peripherals to non profit organizations (ex. communities of faith, schools, community centers, etc.). In addition, members teach classes that help raise the rate of computer literacy and/or train residents how to maintain and support what technology they may already have.

Who We Are:


TechServ is a student organization at Drexel University. We are comprised of students of all majors and are all volunteers. All Drexel students are welcome to join TechServ, regardless of prior technical knowledge. Our mission is to help bridge the Digital Divide in the Philadelphia area, which we primarily do by refurbishing computers and donating them to non-profit organizations in need. Our other activities include technology-related workshops, hosting student-organization websites, and organizing fun events throughout the year. All visitors are encouraged to explore this website for more information.

Directions:


TechServ is located on the University City (Main) campus of Drexel University, in the MacAlister building, Room 0020 (33rd and Chestnut Streets).

It is the building marked with an “A” on this map (where the Drexel Bookstore is located). Please note that MacAlister Hall has been mislabeled on the map. Follow the “A” instead of the map’s labeling.

When picking up or dropping off a donation, the easiest way to get here is to drive up 33rd Street as if you are heading towards Chestnut Street, and pull into the parking lot at the back of the building. It is the last right-hand turn you can make before you reach the intersection between 33rd and Chestnut Streets. For most donations, we typically use the loading dock at the end of the parking lot if it is available. For smaller donations, or of the loading dock is unavailable, meet in that parking lot and we will proceed from there.

An animation of the street approaching the loading dock is shown below (may take a few moments to load):
