Introduction

Submitted by csin on Mon, 11/21/2016 - 1:56pm

IT maintains computer labs in cooperation with our IT partners for student use on campus.

  • All labs feature Internet access, and have various versions of productivity software.
  • Each lab has slightly different software and hours of availability, so it is best to check the section for a particular lab.
  • Many of the labs are booked for classes, but may be used for "Drop-In" when there are no classes running, so the schedules can vary day to day.
  • Use your IT Username (IT Account link to http://www.ucalgary.ca/it/access/itaccount) to access most computer labs.
  • If you are having trouble logging in, you may need to enable Windows Logon. Or change your IT Computing Account password.

Are you having a computer problem in one of the labs? Let us know using this form.
