What do computer rooms offer?

  • PCs connected to the University’s data network.
  • Usually at least one multifunctional device (MFD) offering colour and black and white printing, copying and scanning.
  • Wireless access and sometimes more specialised equipment such as wide format printers and audio visual equipment.
  • Software applications and more specialist software in some School computer rooms.
  • Long opening hours with many computer rooms open 24/7.

Accessing computer rooms

  • Open to all members of the University.
  • Access outside core hours is by University Card only.
  • It is important that you do not allow unauthorised people to enter computer rooms (i.e. by holding the door open for them when you have used your card to gain access).
  • You must be prepared to identify yourself (with your University Card) to Security staff if necessary.

Using the computers

In line with the University’s environmental policy, if a PC is inactive for twenty minutes the machine will log out. If the PC is still inactive after ten minutes, the machine will hibernate.
