Internet and Computer Access

We offer FREE access to basic Wi-Fi service and Microsoft Office 365 on campus.

Computer Facilities

Providence has a variety of computer facilities available on campus. Students have access to the main computer lab near the library, Seminary students have access to a small lab on the Seminary floor and there are research stations in the library for all students. Lab and library computers have the latest version of Microsoft Office and laser printers are available in those locations. Laser printing is billed at 10 cents per page and colour printing (available in the library) for 20 cents per page. Kiosk computers are located in public areas of the Reimer Student Life Centre and the Hanna Centre for basic email and web browsing.

Network Login Account

Access to the campus network requires a network login account. The IDs and passwords are generated and emailed to students automatically after the student is registered for classes. If you have not received this email it is possible that the Registrar’s Office does not have your correct email. Please visit the Registrar’s Office in the Welcome Centre and give them your correct email address so that we can send you your login details. For assistance with your login account, please come to the IT Department on the first floor, across from the Student Development offices.

Wi-fi Device Registration

The Providence Wi-Fi hotspot available throughout the campus is called "Campus" and it requires a password to connect, which is "Providence".

In order to mitigate problems with virus-infected devices, which can severely disrupt the network, registration of each device is required. Registration is done visiting http://campus.prov.ca/ after you connect and then following on-screen instructions.
