Lab computer changes Fall 2022

Based on feedback from students, and faculty, and in preparation for on campus instruction in September 2022, EIT has updated the configuration of computers in teaching and public access labs on campus. 

What is changing? 

  • Effective September 6, 2022 you will no longer use your S number to login in. Instead, you can use your Saint Mary’s email address and password to login into lab computers. 
  • When printing from lab and public access computers you will now see 3 print queues: Student-BW on SMU-LabPrint, Student-CL on SMU-LabPrint and Student-LFCL on SMU-LabPrint.  Lab and public access printers will have a print release station installed and you will use your S number to release your print job.
  • Once logged in, you will no longer need to subsequently log into Office 365 applications, you will be logged in automatically 
  • Login in time will be faster. 
  • Network drives (e.g. The J:/ drive) will no longer be mapped when you log into these computers. 

Why is it changing? 

This change is part of a series of upgrades and improvements to the desktop computing environment at Saint Mary’s that will: 

  • ensure the university’s systems follow security best practices and standards  
  • allow for future improvements in functionality and user experience 

Saving documents 

Documents can be securely shared via OneDrive. Information on how to do so can be found here: Sharing-on-OneDrive

If you currently have data saved to your J:/ Drive you should move it to your OneDrive.  If you require assistance, please reach out to the EIT Help Desk at helpdesk@smu.ca.
