University of Calgary Information Technologies (UCIT) is responsible for providing computing and networking support to U of C students via PC computers, Unix, and high-performance computing facilities.
Every student is entitled to a UCIT computing account on the central computing system. More information on getting an account and the benefits of an UCIT account can be found at: http://www.ucalgary.ca/it/itaccount.
As a student, you may use UCIT-supported PC and Unix workstation laboratories across campus. Particularly important is the Information Commons on the second floor of the MacKimmie Library Block, where you will find over 250 PCs, printing facilities (including printing from wireless) and access to AirUC (U of C's wireless network). In addition to the IC, the Elbow Room (Room 142 Science Theatres) offers a "drop-in" microcomputer lab with UCIT staff available to offer technical assistance.
