Computing services in the Library

Computer lab

There are over 90 open-access computers available for student use in the Library. Most are in group study areas.

Silent Study

The computers on the 3rd floor are in a silent study area, so please remember that they are intended for individual study only.

The software applications available on all of these computers include: MS Word, MS Excel, MS Access, MS PowerPoint, MS Explorer.

Special software is available to students with additional needs.

To access all computers, you will need your username and password. The computers are all available when the Library building is open.

Print & Go

There are 2 workstations on the ground floor reserved especially for printing from USB memory stick and H: drive. Access to Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint Viewer only and no internet access.

IMPORTANT: Your default location for saving documents, files and folders that you create while you are working is your H: drive.
Do not save your work to the C: drive (local hard disk) as all these files are removed on reboot. Remember that you can always access your H: drive from whichever computer you use so long as you log in with your correct username and password.
