Facilities and features
Computer Science Laboratories
Our numerous high-specification computing laboratories are equipped with the latest PCs with current professional-standard software. The laboratories in Gateway House provide 100 computer workstations for students to use, and the space is divided into interconnected laboratories each with 20 machines (20 HP PCs running Windows/Linux).
You will benefit from printing facilities, internal network access and digital projectors which aid teaching and learning. All the machines are connected via the Faculty of Technology network to a dedicated, high-performance file server for storage and backup of students’ work. Many of the software packages are open source which means students can download and run software at home.
You will also benefit from study spaces within the faculty buildings that are available for you to use on a casual basis throughout the year in addition to our Kimberlin Library.
The main Kimberlin Library is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year (other than in exceptional circumstances) and offers a huge range of online resources, all of which can be remotely accessed from anywhere you choose.
The library is run by dedicated staff who offer additional support to students, including help with academic writing, research strategies, literature searching and reference management and assistive technology, and mathematical skills for non-maths students. There is also a Just Ask service for help and advice, available via email or telephone.
Our comfortable and well-equipped study areas provide a range of environments to suit your needs.
Our Learning Zones and The Greenhouse provide flexible spaces, whether you are working as a group, practising a presentation or working quietly on your own.
They feature workstations with power supplies for laptops, plus bookable syndicate rooms with plasma screens, laptops and DVD facilities. Wi-Fi is available across all campus locations.
