What are Smart Bars?

Visit our Smart Bars for IT support and advice on a wide range of queries including:

  • laptop and mobile
  • email, Teams, Office 365 and software
  • online university systems
  • IT account activation and online registration

Our staff support Windows, macOS and GNU/Linux laptops as well as Android, Windows and Apple iOS mobile devices.

Important changes to the Smart Bar service

Smart Bars on campus will be closed from Saturday 21 March 2020. They will open when the University fully reopens again. 

In the meantime, you can contact the IT Service Desk or use the Virtual Smart Bar for IT support.

Thank you for your understanding.
