The open computer labs (Hammond 1st floor, Edgerly 106, 201, 202, Conlon 201, 338, 337, Bridge between Conlon and Conlon FA , and McKay C165) require all users to swipe their card at a print release station to enable printing of their documents. Students are given a $20 print copy quota at the beginning of each semester via the Papercut printing system.

Laundry facilities located in Aubuchon, Russell Towers, Herlihy, Mara Village, and the Townhouses are equipped to accept payment using your OneCard. Each laundry room has a card reader. Swipe your card and select the washing machine you wish to use (all machines are numbered).
