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 Computer Science laboratories include a study space area, in which you can work individually or in groups.
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.
We have 1,600 study places and more than 700 computer workstations across all library locations on campus. These give access to more than half a million print publications, thousands of e-books and e-journals and a huge range of DVDs plus a host of research databases.
The main Kimberlin Library is open 24 hours a day, 365 days of the year (other than in exceptional circumstances).
The Library is run by dedicated staff who offer additional support to students, including academic writing, research strategies, literature searching and reference management. There is also a Just Ask service for help and advice, available via email or telephone.
