Can I write my assignments on the Library computers? What software is included?

Yes, you can use the computers at any of the three SFU libraries. See our related FAQs on Library computer locations and Library computer logins for information on getting access to Library computers.


SFU Information Technology keeps an up-to-date list of software specifications on assignment computers. 

You can borrow Dell Notebook Laptops from the circulation desks at all three SFU Libraries. These are equipped with assignment software.

For assistance with any technical problem with your assignment workstation, contact the appropriate IT Services division for your campus.

At W.A.C Bennett Library at SFU Burnaby, visit the IT Tech Help Desk on the third floor for help.
