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 80 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 world wide web - created with a bit of help from a DMU Maths student
Nicola Pellow was a Maths undergraduate at DMU, then known as Leicester Polytechnic, when she joined Sir Tim Berners-Lee and Henrik Nielssen to work on the world wide web project at CERN, the European Organisation for Nuclear Research, in November 1990.

Library and Learning Zones
We have 1,500 study places and 650 computer workstations across four sites on campus. These give access to more than half a million publications, an extensive range of DVDs, e-resources and thousands of electronic journals.
During standard term-time (October to June) the main Kimberlin Library is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Outside of this period, and during university holidays, the library will remain open but with reduced opening hours.
Award-winning staff are on hand to help and there is a café for study breaks. We offer a range of workshops, drop-in and one-to-one sessions, and our Just Ask service provides email and telephone support.
Our comfortable and well-equipped study areas provide a range of environments to suit your needs.
Originally set up in our main Kimberlin Library, the learning zones proved so popular that more were created in the Eric Wood Building and Greenhouse. These flexible spaces are ideal 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 interactive whiteboards and DVD players. Eduroam wi-fi is available across all campus locations.
