Housed in the parking garage in the basement of Lockhart Hall is one of two technology services offices at the University of Winnipeg. The office isn’t necessarily what one would expect a technology office to look like. There are no gleaming metal instruments or wall-to-wall flat screens portraying unreadable data.
