In case you missed it
We understand a lot of information was presented in your FSUS FLITE class. Hopefully this page will help you navigate FLITE. Here is a handout to help summarize the information too.
Check out laptops in FLITE
38 Laptops are available at the Check-out Desk for 4 hour use in the FLITE building. (Two of them are Macs.)
The overdue fee is $15.00 per hour.
Other FLITE computers
Computers on 1st Floor have Arts & Sciences software on them, and do not require a password.
Computers on 2nd and 3rd Floor provide special software (see FLITE software link) and are reserved for Ferris student/faculty/staff use only. Use them with your MyFSU username and password.
If you cannot find an open computer, please speak to the Check-out Desk staff. They may be able to open an instruction studio to provide more computers for students.
Printing in FLITE
Printers are on the First Floor near the Information Commons, on the Second Floor near the Information Desk, and in the Extended Studies area (room 158). Black and white pages cost .10/page and color are .50/page.
The first time you use your ID card to print, it must be initialized. Please take it to the Check-out Desk on the First Floor or the Information Desk on the Second Floor for initialization. Once initialized, add money in $ increments using the card machine at the end of the Check-Out Desk. (Change is available at the Check-Out Desk.)
If you don't have your student ID, IKON cards can be purchased for $1 at the dispenser at the end of the Check-Out Desk. Add value to the card by placing card into dispenser and adding money in $ increments. Be sure to place your card in first after purchase, or you'll get another card.
Once you have added funds to your card, follow these steps for printing at FLITE:
- Print your document using the software's print function using File >> Print instead of the print icon. (For large files, print in smaller amounts of under 10 pages.)
- When prompted, give name and password of your choosing.
- Go to print server and insert card. (Print server computers are located to the right of Check-Out Desk, in the Extended Studies Area, and on the Second Floor.)
- Click on your job.
- Click on print and enter the password you used when you sent the job.
- Collect your printout. Don't forget your card!
For more information, including printing in color and printing from your laptop, see Printer Directions.
Cell phones and noise
Cell phones should be silenced when in FLITE. You can use them for calls in the Extended Hours area, the lobby entrance, the elevator corridors on each floor, any of the enclosed stairwells, or in a study room.
Quiet areas are designated in the 3rd Floor seating and computer areas and the Extended Hours area (only when the main part of FLITE is closed.)
For more information see the Noise Policy.
