The Computer Science laboratories in Gateway House provide over 100 computer workstations for students to use. The space is divided into four interconnected laboratories each with 20 machines, and a fifth laboratory with 23 machines. Currently these workstations are HP PCs running running both Windows and Linux.
There are printing facilities available, internal network access and digital projectors to aid in teaching. 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.
