Computer Science Laboratories
The Computer Science laboratories in Gateway House provide 80 computer workstations for students to use. The space is divided into four interconnected laboratories each with 20 machines (20 HP PCs running Windows/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.
The laboratories include study spaces at which you can work individually or in groups; this study space is not timetabled and is available on a casual basis throughout the year.
This is DMU’s social hub, housing a large food court, shops, the Lobby bar, De Montfort Students’ Union (DSU), performance studios and our chaplaincy.
There are also Conference Rooms, allowing us to host a variety of events from workshops, lectures, practical sessions and group work to exhibitions.
In March 2016 work started in the centre to create a state-of-the-art new home for DSU, making it more visible, offering more breakout space and giving better access to its key services.
