The Library has many computer workstations located throughout the first floor. All computers in the Collaboration Zone are available for individual or group use. The two workstations upstairs in the Silent Zone are for individual use only. 

In addition, IT lends laptops to students through the IT Help Desk. Just bring your CapCard! 

Any computer can be used to find resources like books, articles and movies in the Library's physical and online collections.

Each workstation can be accessed using your CapU credentials, is connected to the CapU student network, and is ready to print with your virtual printing account. . Community members can ask for access at the Library Services desk.

Username: Your first and last name, no spaces, all small letters (for example, janesmith, nasirmohammad)

Password: Your CapU student password, used to log in to all online student services. This was originally set to your birthdate (MMDDYY).

Working with Documents

Please do not save items to the desktop or My Documents except for immediate printing.

Remember to email important documents to yourself to ensure you do not lose work. Never open a document directly from email - always save to your H: drive folder FIRST, then edit, save, and email for safekeeping.

Working on Wireless

Capilano offers free wireless internet access to all active students and employees in the Library and throughout most areas on campus. See the Wireless Access page for more detailed instructions.

Note: Printing from laptops/wireless is available via CapU Wireless network for PDF documents only. For more information, visit Printing in the Library or the IT Services' page on printing

We’ve done our best to make outlets available throughout CapU Library. All study carrels on the 2nd floor have their own plugs and additional outlets are on most walls and pillars on the first floor.  If an outlet doesn’t work, please report it to the front desk; it’s likely a breaker needs to be flipped.

Charging Stations

The Library provides a charging station for your hand-held devices. Ask us at the Library Services desk if you'd like help finding it.

The CSU also provides secure device-charging stations in their Library Lounge, located near the south-west exit of the Library building.
