Lab policies


Computing labs may be booked for academic purposes by anyone in the Faculty of Mathematics and by others (again for academic purposes only) upon approval of the Associate Dean, Computing.


Computational labs are shared resources intended for academic use. The Math Faculty Computing Facility (MFCF) usage policy on shared resources therefore applies.

  • Access: except for scheduled labs and subject to no one person or group monopolizing access, all access is first come first served. Access cannot be reserved and any resource that is vacant for 15 minutes can be accessed by another (e.g. by signing an absent user out from a vacant machine).
