Together with the developments in the quality area, measuring service quality has become an important issue. The aim of this study is to measure the service quality of Bilkent Computer Center (BCC). BCC is responsible for providing computer services in Bilkent University. SERVQUAL, which is a popular tool for measuring the service quality of a company, is used for this purpose. SERVQUAL aims at measuring the difference between the expectations and perceptions of the customers of a service. This is achieved by conducting a questionnaire among the users and employees of the organizations. The SERVQUAL scores for the organization show that the expectations of students and the academic staff are not satisfied by BCC, especially in reliability, responsiveness and assurance dimensions. Our results also suggest that there may be different levels of dissatisfaction among various user groups. The results point out the major problems to be the lack of 'Marketing Research' orientation, management's commitment to service quality, goal setting, supervisory control systems, perceived control and horizontal communications.
