  • Other Policies

The SCS computer labs are for the use of SCS students, staff and faculty only. If there are non-SCS students in the lab, please report them to the SCS Tech Staff or contact University Safety at x3612

Lab Access


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.

Instructor Lab Information

Instructors are encouraged to ensure their students are aware of the labs and the installed software and resources.

Instructor Lab Resource Requests

Instructors can request the following Resources:

  • Software Install – Request that specific software be installed on the Windows Lab Image. The software must be windows compatible. If the software is NOT free, you must provided the required licenses or submit a funding request for the School to purchase the licenses
  • VirtualBox Virtual Machine – If your course provides a Virtual Machine image to students, you can request that it be added to the lab computers for students to use there.
  • Tutorials, Demos and Presentations – You may book the labs for course lab tutorials, demonstrations and presentations. You may also book the labs for other requirements such as research presentations, student group activities (eg: coding competitions), etc.
  • File Distribution – If you have a large file or software package that your students need for their course, you can have it added to a shared folder on the Windows Lab Image. This can be used by students to download the files onto a USB key, which may be more convenient if they have a slow home network connection.
