As a student in the department, you have access to specialized computer equipment, software, and network infrastructure that are not available to those in other departments on campus.

We have 2 drop-in labs available to you at all times.

You also have access to the Computer Science Assistance Centre located on the 2nd floor of the Engineering & Computer Science (ECS) building, room 251.  Assistance Centre hours are posted on ConneX for each term.  

ConneX is the department's primary online learning and collaboration management tool that allows students, instructors, and researchers to interactively create and collaborate in shared websites, social networking sites, internet file-sharing and online teaching tools. 

To use the computers and facilities in the department, you must have a computer science account in our system. 

To activate your computer science account, visit our Activate Account page in ConneX.
