Lab Orientation PDF
Labs are open DAILY with the exception of holidays and other days the college is closed. Your card has been programmed to allow access to ONLY the specific labs you will be using. Your timetable will indicate the labs you will have access to for your courses. You will also have access to the front and rear doors of the Technologies Centre.
Access to labs is a privilege. You are personally responsible for the use of your card.
Access will be revoked if you abuse the privilege by allowing unauthorized persons access to the labs and/or conduct yourself in an inappropriate manner. Our security system is tracking your lab usage each time you enter a lab.
Your Camosun ID card can be obtained at the College library at either Interurban or Lansdowne campus.
You are asked to retain your Camosun ID card once issued.
Your lab access privileges will automatically be re-instated in time for semester/quarter dates once registration has been confirmed.
The Camosun ID card, while providing lab access, also provides other benefits to registered students. Please refer to the library handouts, issued with the card, for benefit information and conditions of issue and use.
A fee will be charged to replace cards. Visit the library to request all card replacements.
The card remains the property of Camosun College. Do not damage or alter the card in any manner. The card is non-transferable and can only be used by the person named and pictured on the card.
