Where do I pick up or drop off equipment?

IT now has a new locker system, which allows employees to pick up and drop off equipment 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The lockers are located at the Nanaimo Campus, Library B305, 2nd floor (in front of the Campus Store). An employee card will be required to enter the area outside regular University operational hours.

Note: Some pickups will still need to be received at the IT Back Door (instructions below)
