Computing Commons

Students at Seneca College are supported with high quality and accessible information technology resources and services. Each campus provides access to a wide variety of general purpose and specialized computing labs. Each campus also provides access to a physical Computing Commons (open access computing facility) where students may access computers (outfitted with a full range of application software and Internet services), obtain technical support, print, scan and work individually or in groups.

In the Computing Commons, students are able to access general (e.g. e-mail, word processing, spreadsheet) and specialized software applications. Available specialized software is dependent on the campus and the academic requirements and offerings at a particular campus. All College computers have full Internet access with authentication.

Service Desk information technology support services are available to all students in-person (Newnham, Seneca@York, Markham, King) or by web or telephone.
