Computer labs are available across all campuses of the University. The configuration of these labs varies; some computer labs contain projectors for teaching purposes, while others do not. Computer labs are typically identified as either:
- Common-use computer labs: these are available for all students to use. Some labs are available 24/7; students can view the availability of computer labs on their campus at the Student Computing page. Common-use computers are also available in the library.
- School based computers: some areas of study have specialist computing needs and the relevant school provides access for this. These may be Windows or Mac labs (or dual-boot with both operating systems installed). Further information about access to these facilities for students can be obtained from the School/Department that owns the lab.
