Yes, the College purchased Acer Chromebooks to loan to enrolled students who need a good computer to complete/continue their courses online, and a number of these devices are still available. Chromebook laptops can run any web-based application, allowing students to use our eCentennial learning portal to participate in remote learning during the pandemic. To get the most out of the Chromebook, students are encouraged to download Microsoft Office 365 and Microsoft OneDrive onto the Chromebook, which entitles them to access 5 TB of Cloud storage for their academic work.
Students who need a loaner device, and have not yet reserved one, can email: email@example.com. Unfortunately, we cannot ship devices outside Canada.
A note on returning your loaner device: The Chromebook loan service is free to students enrolled at the College until 1) the end of the pandemic and/or 2) we are able to begin delivering our programs in classrooms full time. The College asks students who are remaining in Canada to keep their loaner devices until the Declaration of Emergency is lifted and we have provided details on how and where to return the devices. If you are leaving Canada after your program ends, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
As of Saturday, March 14, our Progress Campus Child Care Centre, East York Early Childhood Education Centre and the Diefenbaker childcare location will be closed in compliance with direction from Toronto Public Health until further notice.

As well, support is available through one of the College’s counselors working at the Centre for Accessible Learning and Counselling Services.

The item may be shipping from a location that has closed due to COVID-19 concerns. Orders will be filled when that location is once again accessible. Items that are in this situation are marked as BACKORDERED on the website. However, the BACKORDERED status may not have been displayed if the ship-from location was not yet closed or was in the process of closing when the order was originally placed. We recommend students recheck the item for confirmation. Sorry for the inconvenience during this uncertain time.
Students who wish to cancel material in BACKORDERED status can click “Contact Store” in the website footer and complete the section under “Questions & Comments”. Remember to provide your Web Order Number.
Semester End: Loaner Devices, Locker Contents and Textbooks
Device loan agreements include a clause advising that students must return devices to the College before their transcript is released. We will make some exceptions for graduates who require a transcript for employment purposes and international students who need a transcript for the Post-Graduate Work Permit Program. If you still have a loaner device but need a copy of your transcript for these purposes, send your request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Due to the current state of emergency, non-essential campus access remains strictly limited to those participating in, or supporting, academic delivery (labs, classes or studio work). Students who are scheduled to be on campus may use lockers on a daily basis, emptying the contents at the end of each day. There is no fee for locker use.
Students not scheduled to be on campus, and who have not yet emptied their locker, may email experienceCC@centennialcollege.ca if they have an immediate, urgent need to retrieve its contents. Please allow two business days for a response.
When the current restrictions are lifted, students can request access to retrieve locker contents using this form.
