Public Resources


All public workstations are located on the 3rd floor of the Trottier building. Please observe the following rules when using CS space on Trottier 3rd floor:

  • Never shutdown a workstation
  • Never unplug CS hardware
  • Do not try moving workstations
  • Do not leave trash around
  • Make sure the monitor is on before leaving
  • Place back the chair before leaving

The following systems can be logged on locally using a CS account or your McGill email and password. The latter will only provide temporary local storage for your files. Thus, any work done using your McGill email should be saved elsewhere before logging out. Remote login to any of those workstation is also possible; see the Remote Access section for more information.

Public Servers

We have multiple public servers that can be logged on remotely (see the Remote Access section). They are virtual machines with the advantage that they can't be shutdown unexpectedly by students like the public workstations above.
