Computer printing

For lab printing, use Pcounter, a printing system that deducts the cost of your print jobs directly from your printing account. You may load funds onto your Pcounter account at the Campus Card Office or by using the Pcounter deposit stations in the Riddell Library, Tim Horton's, EB Building and the Westgate entrance.

Campus access

Students - your current semester schedule will determine which labs you have access to. Remember, your card will only enable you access during the hours the lab is open for use. It may take up to one business day for late registrations or changes to your schedule to be updated in the electronic lock system. Please check with your instructor first. Additional questions may be answered by Security Operations (X200E).

Employees - your access to buildings and rooms will need to be identified on a key requisition form, signed by the department head. The completed form, along with your Campus Card will have to be taken to Security Operations (X200E), for encoding.


Your Campus Card automatically gives you borrowing privileges at the Library. The Library offers thousands of books, periodicals, videos and other vital resources to assist you in your studies and for general information.
