Spring / Summer Service Hours

From now until when classes begin for the Fall Term, we are on reduced staff, but we will try to keep the same service hours as in the Fall/Winter on the days that we are open: 09:00–16:00 excluding lunch. The main difference is that there is no backup staff, so if we have to leave the Lab to attend to something, services will not be available. Generally, if the Main Lab door is open but the Head Tech's door is closed, check for a sign on his door to see when he is scheduled to return. (And no, we don't put up "Back in 5 minutes", we actually specify a time, even if it is just an estimate.) If the Main Lab door is closed, check this web site or Twitter (@uciaml) to confirm that the Lab is closed for the day. Yes, even our faithful Lab staff take a vacation sometime.

Services will not be available on the following days (more days will be added as they become known):

  • Monday, May 16 — Card Access only
  • Monday, May 23 (Victoria Day) — Card Access only
  • Wednesday, June 15 through Monday, June 20 — Lab closed for upgrading and workshop; no access
  • Monday, June 27 through Monday, July 4 — Card Access only
  • Monday, August 1 (Heritage Day) — Card Access only
  • Monday, August 15 through Friday, August 25 — Card Access only
  • Monday, September 5 (Labour Day) — Card Access only

End of Term File Removal

Deleting Files

Files on the Lab Server and all stations are subject to immediate deletion as of April 25. Eventually, every computer in both Labs will be completely erased. Save your files to an external drive, such as a USB flash drive.

Winter 2016 Staff Schedule

This term, staff hours will return to the more normal 09:00–12:00 and 13:00–16:00 weekday pattern. We will also try to offer lunch hour service when possible. Carefully note the new class schedule for this term. While there is a lot more free time for drop-in usage, it is almost all during the morning — Wednesday and Friday afternoons are booked for class use from 13:00 until past closing. Monday is your best bet for access.

Also, when classes are cancelled or end significantly early, we tweet this out on our Twitter account, @uciaml. Have a great Winter Term!
