4 changes on campus you should know about if you’re taking Spring/Summer classes

April 30, 2020 | Campus Life
Even though your Spring/Summer 2020 classes are all online, chances are you will still need textbooks, tech support, help from librarians and access to a variety of other services. Here are some updates on how to get what you need.


1. The mstore now offers curb-side pickup

Learning materials for Spring/Summer courses are available on the bookstore website, and can either be shipped to you (free shipping within Alberta or a reduced rate of $10 outside of Alberta) or picked up at the mstore’s new curbside pick-up location at the Towers patio entrance between Buildings 5 and 6. If you choose the curbside pick-up option, please contact the mstore to arrange a pick-up time frame. 



2. Library services and spring/summer renovation

To improve traffic flow through the centre of campus and to create more quiet study space for students, the John L. Haar Library is currently undergoing construction. Building 6 is now closed to allow contractors to complete the construction project’s first phase, which will create different zones in the library with varying levels of noise and activity.

You still have online access to our librarians, most of the university’s library collection, research assistance and library workshops. Read about the library’s online services.



3. The Tech Support Help Desk is now in Building 7

With Building 6 closed, the Tech Support Help Desk has moved to 7-292 (the former office space of the Students’ Association of MacEwan University) for the Spring/Summer term. You can use the walk-up help desk to access the student laptop loan program, print job pick-up services and more. Check the Tech Support website for up-to-date information on services and operating hours. Tech support is also available by email or by using the online chat tool at MacEwan.ca/TechSupportChat.

4. On-campus study space

If you need access to study space on campus, Rooms 7-142 and 7-145 are available during the hours Building 7 is open (8 a.m. to 6 p.m.). A student computer commons in 7-297 offers access to laptops and operates during the same hours as the Tech Support Help Desk (check here for up-to-date hours.) All three rooms are set up to accommodate social distancing.
