Computer Services & Printing


MBA students can print, scan and copy using the machine in the TD Learning Commons behind the Concierge Desk (RJC, 1st floor). There are six computers (Windows) located there which can print to this machine.  There is also a machine on the second floor by the study area (RJC 253).

To send a print job, log into the computer. (If you’re using the machine in the TD Learning Commons, you can use the name rjcprint with no password). Then you can print your documents from a USB drive, using your PrintSmart account. Remember to log out when you’re done so that no one else uses your account.

NOTE: There is a Macintosh and a Windows computer on the second and third floor common areas for students to use. Only the Windows computers can be used for printing though.

Student printing/copying and scanning is done through PrintSmart.

Laptop Borrowing

Twenty laptops are available for students to use at the Ron Joyce Centre. They can be signed out at the Welcome Centre/Concierge Desk.

There is a time limit of 6.5 hours and the laptops cannot be taken out of the building.  You must provide your student card when borrowing a laptop. Individuals who do not follow these terms will lose their right to use the laptop service. They help ensure fair access for all students.

Each term, new students are required to fill out a laptop borrowing agreement that outlines the terms of use for the service. The forms are available at the Welcome Centre/Concierge Desk.

The laptops have been set up for PrintSmart, Citrix (virtual lab) access, and have MS Office 2010 installed.
