  1. Use the link below for non-uOttawa accounts and follow the prompts to register for an account. Please use an institutional account.
  2. Select the PI/Lab to request access – this is the lab of your supervisor. If your lab does not exist in the options, you will need to contact the core facility to proceed.
  3. Select the Facility you wish to request access.

The core facility will be notified by email to approve of your request. Some institutions, such as OHRI, are on automatic approval for facility access. Once the facility and your PI approves of your request, you should be able to see all instrument calendars, but you will only be able to make Training and Core Facility Acquisition (Fee-Per-Service) bookings.
