Computer Classrooms (and other open access areas)

There are many clusters of computers around the campus which are freely available to staff and students:

Some computer rooms are bookable, either through the through the main University booking system or through the particular School. When not booked, these computer rooms are usually open for general use, but they may be closed at short notice to allow preparation for a class.

Some classroom computers do not have the facility to be locked (i.e. reserved by individuals) however some do. The areas that allow locking are as follows: Medical Science Anatomy and Resource Centre, Alternative Technology Centre in Main library, Bute Classroom, Butts Wynd Classroom, Chemistry, Library Cluster A and B as well as Level 3 and 4, Departmental Libraries, Edgecliff, Gateway, Irvine, MUSA, Post Graduate PC's, Psychology, residences, United Colleges and the Medical Sciences Wedge. Please note on all classroom pc's they will be logged out after 30 minutes of inactivity.

Software Application Delivery is Changing.....

Over the past few years, many of you have let the University know that you want to access all software applications from any PC across campus and even on your own device. Historically, software applications have been installed locally on PCs in the School where the applications are taught - this lacks flexibility as you want to access these software applications from any location across campus.

You can also view the software available at apps anywhere.
