Lab Bookings

You can book a computer lab on Intranet. An IITS Lab Co-ordinator will review the booking. In the case of a conflict, priority is given to academic bookings.  Please direct any questions to Jason Holtz

Linux Lab Login Issues

While the IITS Windows computer labs can be accessed using your UTORid account, our Linux labs are maintained by the Department of Computer and Mathematical Sciences. Login access to labs are typically restricted to those students enrolled in B, C or D level CSC courses. 

It's not uncommon for students to experience difficulties logging into these workstations. If you are having trouble logging in, please consult the quick FAQ reference guide for some solutions to common issues. 

If you are still experiencing issues, please contact the Student Helpdesk

Conferences and Sponsored Events

Usage charges are as follows:

  • $150/day/lab
  • $45/hr for any software installation, if required, and provided it is compatible with lab configuration
  • If part of or all the booking is scheduled outside the normal Student Helpdesk business hours, $18/hr charge applies for the extra time the helpdesk has to remain open

Visitor Lab Access 

Students visiting from UTSG or UTM will need to request visitors status via the visitors webform in order to have authorized access on UTSC lab workstations via their UTORids. After submitting the form, you will have access for the duration of the semester within 5-15 minutes, and can signup again next term for further access. If you receive an error message upon form submission, please contact the Student Helpdesk.


24 hour labs: B473, B487, B490, and B494

You can request booking of a computer lab through the intranet.
