No Lab Services During Summer Term [updated]


Due to the Head Technician's current absence (he has been seconded to IT), there will be no staff scheduled during the Summer Term unless otherwise posted. If you currently have equipment signed out, it is due Friday, September 9 — no exceptions. Card access should still work for those students and staff who had access for the year. All other inquiries should be directed to Arts IT at 403-220-6104 (returning equipment) or 403–220-8611 (technical support).

Spring Service Hours

We are on reduced staff, but we will try to keep the same service hours in the Spring 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 a staff member 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):

  • All Mondays from May 30 though July 4 (inclusive) — 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
  • Wednesday, July 6 through Monday, September 5 (Labour Day) — Card Access only (see separate article above)

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.
