Need help with IT?

Not sure which drive your memory stick is plugged into? Do you need to know how to change your network password?

Bring along your IT queries to our drop in session this friday between 2.15 and 3.15 in Room 1:124 and we'll do our very best to solve it for you.

Hopefully anyone who was having problems setting up their internet connection in Halls have now got it sorted. If, however, you are still having difficulties then come along to the Service Desk and we'll be happy to help you.

Speedgates are now operational

The new speedgates have arrived and are now fully operational.

This means to enter and exit the Learning Resource Centre, you have to have your smart card or visitors card with you at all times.

Take the left hand lane and place your card on the glass reader of the central island and the gates will open to allow you enter or exit.

If for some reason the gates do not open please see staff at the Reception Desk who will be able to update your smart card.
