PUBLIC COMPUTER ACCESS
Everyone at McGill can use our public GIC computers. They are especially equipped for use with geospatial software. At AnyDesk website you can connect to them on a first-comes-first-served basis for up to 6 hours each time. If you do not need geospatial software you can also access a computer in the Library pool. For accessing any computer you need to be connected through McGill’s VPN.

WE SUPPORT YOU
SUSTAINABLE WORKPLACE CERTIFICATION
At the GIC, our goal is to be a workplace that is mindful of its environmental impact and helps to promote sustainable living amongst our staff and patrons. The GIC is proud to have now received the Silver Sustainable Workplace Certification from the McGill Office of Sustainability, and looks forward to continuing to advance our social, economic and environmental sustainability practices.
SUSTAINABILITY PROJECTS FUND
The GIC is a proud supporter of the McGill Climate and Sustainability Strategy. One way for students and staff to get involved in campus sustainability initiatives is through participation in the Sustainability Projects Fund. Provided by the McGill Office of Sustainability, the fund provides $1 million annually to support both large and small sustainability projects at McGill, with projects receiving from $300 to over $100,000 depending upon the needs and scope of the endeavour. Please visit the Sustainability Projects Fund website for further information regarding application deadlines and submission requirements.
Dr. Tim Elrick, Ruilan Shi and Meghan Ewing are there to support you full time.
Our front desk students are virtually there for you 9 hours daily on week days in person or through the Zoom platform. Book an appointment for a 20-minute meeting with a Front Desk Student: GIC Booking System (see above).
