Computer labs and software

A computer lab

If you need computer facilities, there are a number of PC labs across campus which are open to everyone.

Have a look online to find your nearest ones. The IT Services website provides real-time information on whether there are computers currently available. Your School will also have computers that you will be able to use – go to School Computer Labs for a list.

If you need to use specialist software for your course, the IT Services website has a searchable list of what’s available and where.

IT Services make a wide range of software available for you to download free of charge, including the latest version of Microsoft Office. For a full list of everything available and details of how to download it go to the IT Services website.

IT Toolkit

The IT Toolkit provides an overview of the key IT services you’re likely to need for your studies. You can find out how to:

  • Set up your laptop or desktop to print documents to any printer on campus
  • Access the University’s systems when you’re off campus
  • Back up your documents using OneDrive for Business, which allows you to store, sync and share all kinds of files with other people and devices on the web.

IT help and support

Contact the IT Services Service Desk or visit the PC Clinic in the Library if you have problems with your laptop or desktop.

A list of useful Q&As is also available on the Exams section of the IT Services website.
