PC availability

PCs are available for students to use to access specialist software, complete tasks and conduct any other University-related activities. A number of these machines will still be accessible on campus while a majority will be available via remote access. This means you'll be able to use the software on a University PC through your own device.

You can find a PC on campus easily using our PC Finder tool.

If you're on campus with your own computer, you can connect it to the University network using either free Wi-Fi in designated zones, or a wired network connection if you are in Halls of Residence.


The University's free Wi-Fi service, eduroam, is available in many areas of the University, including Halls of Residence. You can connect your device to our Wi-Fi using eduroam CAT once you're on campus in a Wi-Fi zone.

Halls of Residence

If you're in Halls of Residence you can connect your computer, or one of several supported games consoles, to the network using the wired network point in your room.

Stay safe online

Make sure that all of your devices (PC, laptop, mobile or tablet) that you use for University-related matters have the latest updates and antivirus software installed. If you don't already have antivirus software you can install the University's free antivirus software, Sophos Home.

If you install our antivirus software, make sure you have uninstalled any other antivirus software first.
