New procedures will come from the Dean’s office soon, but for now we are being asked to use the web requisition (WebReq) system to order any software regardless of the cost.

If you are not familiar with the WebReq process, you can read the instructions from this PDF file.

Faculty of Fine Arts staff and students can use the instructions below to access Adobe software. This page also contains links to a form for teachers to request licenses for their entire class. Don’t worry we just need your class number, not all your student names. If a teacher or staff needs their own license, they have to request a staff license by emailing help@concordia.ca.

Concordia has secured a limited amount of Adobe CC licenses for students that will be active as long as you remain an active student enrolled in a class listed below. The license does not grant access to most web only applications and cloud services, such as the cloud version of Lightroom.

Hours and access to equipment

Update:

The Patron Portal is now open to all users.  All patron classes may only have a single reservation in the system at a time.  All bookings will be reviewed by depot staff prior to being finalized in order to ensure pick-ups and returns fit into the limited available timeslots; one user every 15 minutes in order to ensure limited contact between users and staff. 

Depot hours are 9:30am to 5:30pm Monday through Friday.

Undergraduate students have a maximum 7 day booking period with no possibility of renewal.  If equipment is required again there will need to be a two week period between the end of one reservation and the beginning of the next.

Graduate students will have a one time 4 week booking for the semester.  All work requiring equipment from the EV Depot will need to be completed during this period.

 

The Fine Arts depots, including the CDA general pool, MB Theatre Dance and Music, IMCA, DCART and Photography depots, are circulating equipment out of the FOFA Gallery on the 1st floor of the EV building. This is in an attempt to ease the need for students and Faculty to access the building unnecessarily.  This also allows users to get equipment without the need for filling out the One Time Only or Recurring Access forms.  Users will enter and exit through the Ste. Catherine St. door to the gallery located half way between Guy and Mackay Sts.
