The SCS undergraduate computer labs are purposed as:
Computer Labs & Study Space
The Computer labs can be used as study space. Some of the labs have PC’s that run a non-configurable Windows 10 operating system (users cannot install any software). In order to use these lab computers you must create an SCS Windows Account using the:
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.
CUSA Foot Patrol offers safe walks on campus and up to an hour off-campus (including public transit) seven days a week from 6:00 PM to 2:00 AM. Call (613) 520-4066 during their operational hours to use the service, or check out Foot Patrol for more information.
Instructors are encouraged to ensure their students are aware of the labs and the installed software and resources.
Instructors can also login once they have created or updated their SCS Windows Account using the SCS Online Account Management Tool
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.
