University computers are located in Computer Rooms and Libraries. They are available to all registered students and provide access to all of our sytems and services, library resources, a wide range of software, your student email account and the internet. University computers are generally available on a first-come first-served basis, but be aware that some computer rooms are bookable and may be in use for teaching.
A limited number of library laptop loans are available to students. Desktop PCs are also available for use in the libraries.
Thinking of buying your own computer? Discounted access to refurbished laptops or desktops is now available for all students - please see the section for this on the IT Facilities page for further details.
