Starting on Wednesday, July 23 at 10 p.m. until Thursday, July 24 at 12 a.m. IT staff will be performing upgrades on Sheridan’s wireless network. During this 2-hour timeframe wireless services will be periodically unavailable across all of Sheridan’s campuses, including the student residences at Davis and Trafalgar.
Sheridan’s Acceptable Use Policy governs the use of computer networks, all computers and other devices connected to those networks, and the resources made available thereby at Sheridan.There have been a number of recent updates to this document, including pertinent information about CASL – Canada’s Anti-Spam Legislation. All employees are directed to access and read the updated policy.
The Laptop Pre-Check Utility ( for Mobile Computing Students) will determine if your hardware and operating system are acceptable for your Mobile Computing program and will confirm if you will be able to download licensed software from the Sheridan network for use in your program. You will be able to run this utility anywhere you have an internet connection – on or off campus.
All Mobile Computing students – even the most technology savvy – are strongly encouraged to attend one of the Laptop Readiness Sessions that will be held in August and September. These are short, but important sessions where you will log into Sheridan's network with your laptop and install software required for your courses.
Laptop requirements for Mobile Computing students who are starting classes in the September 2014 semester are now available. The Laptop Precheck Utility will be available in the coming days.
Information Technology will be upgrading the employee email and calendar system starting on Saturday, July 26, 2014, concluding on Sunday, August 17. The upgrade will take us from Microsoft Exchange version 2010 to version 2013. Some of the new features you can look forward to include better web browser support for Outlook Web App (OWA) and an enhanced user experience that features new layouts for desktop, tablet, and smartphone use.
