About Office 365
- Office 365 gives you access to Microsoft Office applications (like Outlook, Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote) and other internet-based services (like OneDrive and Sway).
- You can download the entire suite of Microsoft applications to your personal devices once you have logged into Office 365. It can be used on up to five computers and five mobile devices.
- Your Office 365 account will be available for the duration of your course (please refer to your course schedule) and for the next 150 days.
- If you return to Yukon University within 150 days (for example, by the next semester), your Office 365 account will be re-activated and everything from the previous term will become available again.
- We recommend you copy any data you want from your Office 365 account to another storage place before your account expires.
Yukon University email
- Please note that your university email account will expire and be inaccessible 150 days after your last class ends.
- Learn more about using your YukonU email in our Online Learning Tools tutorial.
Moodle system requirements
If you haven't used Office 365 before, please log into Office 365 first, before logging into Moodle. Your Moodle account will be available for the duration of your course (please refer to your course schedule) and for the next 150 days.
To run Moodle effectively you should, at minimum, have the system requirements listed on this page below. Otherwise, Moodle may still work but with less functionality.
Workplace IT environment configurations can also restrict the functionality of Moodle. Access to content may be affected, along with the possibility of uploading files. File size limitations may also apply. Workplaces may also have older versions of software, and Moodle may not perform well with these.
Recommended operating systems
Minimum: Windows 7 or 10, Mac OSX Sierra, iPad IOS10
Use a broadband connection for using Moodle.
Ensure you are using the latest version of your internet browser.
We recommend that the following be enabled:
- Pop-ups (in both Internet browser and security software)
We recommend that you use the latest version of Adobe Reader.
We recommend that you use the latest version of Adobe Acrobat Reader.
To view all the resources uploaded to Moodle, you will probably need to have Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, PowerPoint) or an equivalent (e.g. Open Office, Viewer) installed.
With all firewalls, ensure that you enable file uploading.

All printing is done through PaperCut, a print management software.Yukon University students are allocated $40 worth of printing each term.
Each time you login on a lab computer, a small pop-up window will appear displaying your current balance. Clicking the Details link on this window will bring up a website that will let you see more detailed information about your PaperCut account. At the moment all computer labs are closed but there are workstations available at the Innovation Commons for student use.
If you run out of PaperCut funds before the term is over, you may purchase a top-up from the Campus Store. Please keep in mind the store is open limited hours from 10-2. After you’ve paid, go to IT Services in the Innovation Commons and show the staff there your receipt so they can add the funds to your PaperCut account.
- Black and white printing costs $0.10 per page, with a discount of 50% for double-sided printing. For example, a five-page document printed single-sided will use $0.50 of your printing allocation. A five-page document printed double-sided will use $0.25 of your printing allocation.
- Large print jobs (more than 20 pages) that are selected to print single-sided will prompt you to save printing costs by printing double-sided.
Computer labs at Ayamdigut Campus (Whitehorse) are only available for specific lab or exam use while we observe COVID-19 precautions.
There are computer workstations available in the Innovation Commons for general student use during regular operating hours.
Monday to Thursday 8:30am to 9pm, Friday 8:30am to 5pm, and weekends 1-5pm, closed statutory holidays.
