Working Late? You’re not alone! Working After Hours Program
The School of Computer Science is using Campus Card Access for its laboratories. This means that you can use your Campus Card to enter the labs.
Your lab access is based on the program and course that you are currently enrolled in. For example, if you are enrolled in COMP3004 in the fall term then your access to the lab will commence on the first day of the fall term and end on the last day of the fall term (unless otherwise posted).
Please note that only Computer Science students have access to these facilities. Individuals that gain access to the space and are not eligible to be in the space can be reported to the Department of University Safety. Many of the labs are monitored both with video surveillance and using swipe-card access.
For problems concerning the Campus Card Access system, please contact the SCS Technical Staff.
The access card labs are open 24 hrs/day 7 days per week but are subject to building hours (see below). Please be aware of lab closures on holidays and between academic terms.
