RESIDENCY PROGRAM UPDATE
Click here for an update on how the program will be dealing with residents during this time.
As we continue with social distancing the best way to conduct business is virtually. We have also increased our videoconferencing capability, however, having a large number of individual participants on calls presents its own challenges. In order to book a virtual meeting please visit the MEDIT site for information on Zoom.
The helpdesk continues to operate and can be reached at 1.877.266.0666 (option 2 for VC support, option 3 for room booking support, and mainline for other IT issues) or firstname.lastname@example.org. Please be aware that phone lines may be overwhelmed, so emailing the service desk will be the quickest way to contact the resources you need.
Our VPN capacity has been increased dramatically. However, we are dealing with a volume situation we have never experienced before. VPN is only needed for some of our applications (e.g., Peoplesoft, PAT, Workspace), so to ensure everyone can get access when needed, please:
- Only use it when you need it and then disconnect – If a UBC application is not working or lagging, close the program and VPN and try again.
- Do not stream video or music while connected to the VPN – When you are on VPN, all communications to/from your device go via UBC Vancouver Campus, using up VPN and network capacity.
- Switch off VPN while videoconferencing.
