Undergraduate Logon and Printing Changes - Effective May 1, 2019
Beginning on May 1st 2019, access to undergraduate computing resources in the Department of Computer Science will be done using UVic NetLink ID instead of requiring a separate computer account specific to the department.
Students will no longer be required to "Activate their Computer Science Account" and will login using their NetLink ID. This includes all Computer Science teaching computer labs, our login servers, and conneX.
In conjunction with this move, the Department of Computer Science will begin to use UVic's "PaperCut Printing System" for undergraduate printing, and will no longer have its own printing system for undergraduate use. There will be a one time transfer of any remaining print funds in students Computer Science print accounts to their ONECard accounts which can then be used for printing. New printers utilizing PaperCut will be located in the common areas on the 2nd and 3rd floors of the Engineering and Computer Science building. The cost of printing will increase slightly to UVic's rate of $0.12 cents per side for black and white prints.
