Computer Labs

Computer accounts

Student computer accounts allow access to UFV computers and network files while on and off campus. Access to any computer on all campuses is restricted to currently registered UFV students.

  • Your username is your student ID number located on your Campus Card.

  • Your password will be the same as your myUFV password.


Computer use policy

Appropriate use of computing and network resources (14) is the policy that governs your use and access to UFV computers and network. When using computers, please follow any posted rules or regulations in labs and report inappropriate computer use to IT Services.

Please, also be aware of UFV's copyright rules when photocopying.


Remote connection

UFV Students can now connect remotely to computer labs, allowing them to access campus resources from home. This tool is not to be used to conduct synchronous classroom sessions on lab computers, it is designed to provide periodic, intermittent access to lab computers and associated software.

View our user guide attached here to learn how to access UFV computer labs when you are off-campus:

Unsure which lab to connect to? Visit Computer Lab Software to view a list of software available to UFV Students and the lab location to connect to.

Real-time availability

A computer is considered available if it’s powered on, connected to the internet, and not in use by another student. The dashboard randomizes the computers that it shows to students to spread the load out and prevent two students from trying to use the same computer at the same time. Unavailable computers are not displayed. 

You do not need any special technical knowledge to use this tool.


As this tool is provided by a 3rd party, IT Services is only able to provide support on a limited and best-effort basis. Our internal testing has shown that the best experience is provided by using a Windows-based laptop\desktop PC or Mac running current operating systems. Use of the remote access tool on other devices, such as tablets, iPads, or other mobile devices is not recommended.
