Printing, Equipment and Open Access

Open-access PCs

Study where you feel most comfortable

All of our open access PCs are the latest all-in-one models, designed to maximise both desk space and flexibility.

We provide high speed internet access with the Learning Resource Centres, communal areas and all teaching spaces all Wi-Fi enabled.

Our PCs have a wide range of software to support your studies, and your account will give you access to email-for-life, plus generous network and internet storage for your files.

We also have a PC booking system, which allows you to reserve the machine you need in whatever study zone (Group, Quiet or Silent) you want to work.

Pick up printing at your convenience

Printers are available on both campuses, located in corridors, the Learning Resource Centres and many other locations.

Our "follow-me" service means you can send your work to print and then pick it up at your convenience from any printer you choose.

The machines also offer scanning to email or a memory stick, as well as photocopying.  Print credits can be purchased from self-service machines in the Learning Resource Centres.

The Loans Counter is located in the Academic Building at Bishop Otter campus, complete with it's own loading bay to help when you're collecting or returning kit.
