Laptop Program: Graduating Students, Summer Hours and More
Posted by Andrew McAllister on 16 May 2016 04:10 PM

Graduating Students

For the students who are going out into the big, wide, non-OCAD U world, please stop by the Laptop Help Desk to pick up any remaining software and perform any imaging prior to July 1, 2016 and read this important knowledgebase article about imaging and troubleshooting. http://bit.ly/ocadu-ltpgrad2016


Is the IT Services Help Desk open during the summer?

Yes! We’re still repairing laptops and helping students. We’re here Monday to Friday, 8:00am to 7:00pm all Summer, except statutory holidays. 


Submit to the Adobe Design Achievement Awards Before June 19, 2016

Join the group of OCAD U students who were finalists or winners in the Adobe Design Achievement Awards.

The ADAA is a global digital media competition for student creators designed to launch student careers. Consider submitting to the ADAA today by browsing to http://bit.ly/ocadu-adaa2016 and reading the guidelines.  


Can I Still Take Advantage of the Special Apple MacBook Pro Pricing?

Yes! To learn more about Apple on Campus, and about the Laptop Program, join our Laptop Program Canvas course. Keep in mind, we have no idea when Apple may update their laptop models with new versions: it usually pays to wait. If you need a laptop right now, this is your best bet. 


Can I Still Access to Lynda.com During the Summer

You betcha! Keep in mind that if you’re graduating this year, your access will end this summer in August.


Digital Print Centre is Moving!

COMING THIS FALL! The Digital Print Centre is moving to 51 McCaul Street, with an expanded self-service studio. We’re packing up from our 2nd & 6th floor locations in 100 McCaul Street and moving into the 1st floor of 51 McCaul Street (just behind the Campus Bookstore). With our grand opening in Fall Semester we’re hoping to show off our new Studio space, Expanded Print & Bindery capabilities and the same great service!

Questions and Concerns? Please email copyprint@ocadu.ca or come by the shop! We’re open all summer at our 2nd floor location and are happy to chat and/or print!


Need Help?

Please contact the IT Services Help Desk (Room 341, Level 3, 100 McCaul) at laptophelpdesk@ocadu.ca anytime between 8:00am and 7:00pm, Monday to Friday or by phone at x444. You can also get help by Submitting a Ticket.
