Thesis template help:
The SFU Library thesis template is a Microsoft Word file designed to assist students in preparing theses, projects, and extended essays. The template and instructions are .docx files, and have been tested in Word 2011 (Mac), Word 2013 (Windows), and Word 2016/365 (Windows and Mac).
Please note that SFU Library does not provide technical support for LaTeX users. However, the Library has worked with previous SFU graduate students to provide a template and LaTeX class that sets your thesis according to SFU's requirements and format before submission.
Students with general questions about using LaTeX or problems are encouraged to consult one of the following resources:
