For instructions on accessing WebAdvisor, Blackboard, and Campbell email, please refer to the Computing Services Guide . Note that your email address will contain the first letter of your first name, first letter of your middle name, last name, and day/month of birth. This is the default format. If you encounter an issue while setting up your user ID/email address, try substituting an underscore for your middle initial. If that doesn’t work, please contact the HelpDesk. Their number is listed in the brochure.

Microsoft Office 365: Office 365 Pro will allow you to access Office products from up to 5 computers and also up to 5 mobile devices. You would also have the option of accessing the Office products from any computer through Office.com – without needing any software on the computer you are using.

To install Office 365, you must create a Microsoft Live account using your Campbell email address, i.e. jldoe0311@email.campbell.edu.

For mobile devices you can install from either the App Store for Apple devices or the Play store for Android devices. They will both use the Microsoft Live account you created when setting up the software on your laptop or desktop computer.

We have created instructions for the process and placed them on the IT Help page. It is important that you uninstall any existing versions of Office that we have provided you, before installing Office 365 Pro. This process will not affect any saved documents on your hard drive.

We would encourage you to continue to use Google Drive for storing documents and this Google plugin will make that very easy from within Office applications, like Word, Excel and Powerpoint – https://tools.google.com/dlpage/driveforoffice.

At any time, please come by and see us in Suite 440 if you need additional assistance.

Parking is available for all students. 1Ls park in the Powerhouse Deck and 510 Glenwood Deck. The university charges a parking fee of $350/year to every student.

Parking and Locker Information

We will have locker assignments and keys for pick up on Friday in the Pope Foyer along with parking tags/cards appropriate for the deck to which you have been assigned. Following are some more instructions on parking.

All 1L’s have been assigned to spaces in two decks a few blocks north of the Law School building: Powerhouse Deck or 510 Glenwood Deck. Attached is the list of students with the parking assignment denoted. I have also included a map showing the locations of these decks.

For Friday, August 3rd only, you will park in spaces on or near the Law School site:  parking garage below building – entrance is on Morgan Street; upper deck near Law School entrance – park in spaces not marked reserved or handicap; and across Dawson Street in the first lot bounded by Hillsborough, Dawson, and Morgan Streets (entrance is on Morgan Street).   

Once your ID’s are made on Friday, we will get those programmed for the Powerhouse Deck so you can begin parking on Monday, August 6.  Those parking in the 510 Glenwood Deck will pick up the special access card on Friday, so you can begin parking there on Monday, August 6.

Both decks are within an easy walking distance of the Law School, but the 510 Glenwood Deck is also on the R Line, which is a free Downtown bus that runs every 15 minutes from the deck down Glenwood to the Law School block. The map shows the R Line route. You can go online for more information.

Powerhouse Deck – 513 West Jones Street (at corner of Jones and West Streets): Available from 6:00 am to 6:00 pm. Access entrance closest to railroad track and proceed to the top of the deck. Campbell is allotted spaces on the top two levels. Park in spaces that you can see sky above your car, either on the top deck or along the ramp leading to the top deck. When that level is full drop down to the level immediately below. Parking in other locations in the deck will result in a ticket or booting. Attached is some information concerning the procedures for parking in this deck. Please note that the orange Campbell tag needs to be hung from your rear view mirror and be visible to deck attendants from the front of your car.

510 Glenwood Deck – 510 Glenwood Avenue (between Tucker and Johnson Streets): Available from 6:00 am to 6:00 pm. Access is granted with a special card that will be included in your parking/locker packet. The deck entrance is in the middle of the block off Tucker Street and can be accessed from either Glenwood Avenue or West Street. Park in any available space not reserved or denoted for handicapped. The R-Line stops at the corner of Tucker and Glenwood, just a few feet from the deck entrance. As indicated, information is attached on the deck location and the R-Line. Let me know if you have any questions. Please note that the orange Campbell tag needs to be hung from your rear view mirror and be visible to deck attendants from the front of your car.

Starting each day Monday through Friday at 3:45 pm and all day Saturday and Sunday, you will be allowed to park in the garage below the Law School building (entrance off Morgan Street), on the upper deck near the security entrance, or in the first lot across Dawson Street, bounded by Dawson, Hillsborough, and Morgan Streets. Also, the garage will be open after 3:00 pm on Thursday, August 10th if you would like to move your car before you go to the Dean’s picnic at Haywood Hall. 

Please e-mail any questions or ask when you pick up your tags and locker keys on Friday.

Thanks.

Accepting your Loans

You are now able to accept your 2018-2019 loans online via WebAdvisor. You will be notified by the University’s Office of Financial Aid once your loans are awarded and ready to be accepted. This notification will be delivered via your Campbell University email. You may view a checklist of loan requirements on WebAdvisor.

E-Refunds

All refunds for the Fall semester for everyone will be processed through TouchNet; therefore, you will need to sign up for e-refunds via the TouchNet portal. Please have this completed by August 1st . The e-refund set up guide will walk you through the process step by step.

Financial Aid Disbursements

The Business Office generally processes financial aid refunds during the last week of August. After refunds are processed, it usually takes 24 to 48 hours for the funds to reach your bank account. Incorrect banking information entered into the portal will delay the process, so it is imperative that you enter all account information accurately.
