Microsoft Access is no longer part of the standard Laurier computer
image for new computers. If you require Microsoft Access for development of new
databases then follow the process below:
To obtain Microsoft Access please fill out a Project Request via the ICT Service Desk Customer Portal at the following link https://itservicedesk.wlu.ca/wluvsm/?LITE . The Manager, Student Information Systems will work with you to determine your requirements and the suitability of Microsoft Access. If it is determined that Microsoft Access is the appropriate tool for your requirements, then the Manager Student Information Systems will forward your project request to the Employee Service Desk who will ensure that ICT installs this application on your computer. It is important to note that Microsoft Access will be installed with the understanding that you are solely responsible for the development and support of any databases you create. ICT will not support home grown Access databases.
Clients are solely responsible for development and support of Access databases. ICT will not support home grown Access databases.
