CSIS labs are located throughout the 3 floors of the CSIS building. It is important to note that not all labs are for general use. Some labs have restricted access. This particularly applies to the graduate diploma lab. Students should also be familar with rules and procedures which define acceptable behaviour within the CSIS labs.
If you need any special requirements to access any of the technical facilities in the CSIS Department, please contact any of the student technical support staff. The Access Office has dedicated one PC for use by physically impaired students. This PC is located on the top floor in the CS3-004 lab along the wall. It is clearly marked. Please note that this PC should always be made available to students who are physically impaired.
The university provides support for students with individual physical or sensory requirements. If you have specific requirements in relation to computer access or use, please contact one of the CSIS student support staff at the earliest opportunity or the Disability Liaison Office located on the ground floor of the Library building, or both. All students should be aware that it may be necessary from time to time to designate particular resources for specific purposes. In these circumstances students are asked to respect such designations in a spirit of cooperation and in the interests of the whole CSIS community.
