7 Things to Get You Through The First Few Weeks of Classes [3 min read]

Hey 小猪视频Students! Welcome (or welcome back) to 小猪视频. We are so happy to have you here.听

We know starting a new semester can feel overwhelming with a lot of information to remember. So, as you gear up for the first few weeks of classes, the team at 小猪视频has compiled a list of things that will help you start your semester off on the right foot. From getting your student ID and bus pass, to connecting to wifi and participating in student events, there鈥檚 sure to be at least one thing on this list that will help you settle in.

Have further questions, concerns or ideas? Reach out to us on social media! For news, important announcements and more, follow us on , and .

Now, here are seven things to know for the first week of classes:

1) Get your student ID card at the Help Desk

All students should get their student ID card as soon as possible, as this card will be used as your library card, campus fitness centre pass, meal plan card as well as print and photocopy card. Your student ID is also required for access to certain events such as parties at the Pit or athletics games and acts as a debit card so you can make purchases at food outlets on campus.听

Students can obtain their student ID at the Help Desk located in the Marvin Harvey Building (#23 on our campus map). Click here to learn more.听

2) Bus Passes

Need a bus pass this semester? Visit the 小猪视频Students鈥 Union front desk (#11 on our campus map). Don鈥檛 forget to bring a valid student ID to ensure you receive the student rate. If studying at Cineplex, please be prepared to show proof of enrolment for classes at Cineplex to receive an additional discount (a class schedule from your Compass Student Account is accepted).

3) Register with the 小猪视频Library

Your student ID card also serves as a library card. This card allows students to utilize all services of the library, like borrowing books, laptops, phone chargers, headphones and calculators, plus printing, booking study rooms and ordering books from other libraries.听

To ensure your ID is set up for Library access, please register with the 小猪视频Library so resources are readily accessible to you when they need them. To register or renew a 小猪视频Library account, please click .

4) Connect to 小猪视频Wifi

To access the 小猪视频wireless network, please choose CBU-Secure from the wifi network options. The login and password is the same as your 小猪视频email address (example: CBU22HLA@cbu.ca) and password.听

5) Check聽out the 小猪视频ServiceHub聽

The 小猪视频ServiceHub serves as a digital resource to improve student experience and is a place for you to get things done quickly, all in one place. Whether it鈥檚 registering for a course, accessing your student account, submitting a transcript request or finding general 小猪视频information, the 小猪视频ServiceHub is the place to go. Many of our forms (i.e. Add/Drop, Program Changes, Letters of Completion, etc.) can also be accessed online here.
