Student Centre

Student Computer Labs

There are general student labs on campus that are available for all students. Faculties also have labs that are only available for students enrolled in their courses.

General Labs

The Library Student Centre consists of 3 student labs over 3 floors of the Library - Levels 2, 3, and 4. The hours that these areas are available varies, as does the availability of support staff. Only currently enrolled students can log onto these computers.

Student Centre Support

All labs in the Library are supported 8:30am to 5:00pm. If there is no one at the desk you will be able to reach someone by using the phone provided on each level - Button 1. After hours students should see the Level 2 Information Desk for basic assistance.
