No Computer Access
Most members of staff will have access to their own computer whilst at work, however there may be occasions when you have no use of a computer. If your job requires you to move around campus, you hot-desk or there are too many distractions in the office then you may find that you need to find another way to get online or check emails. If this is the case, here are some of the options available to you.
Bring your own Mobile Device
One option would be to use your own mobile device (smart phone, tablet or laptop). As long as these are secure (with PINs, passwords, anti virus software for example) then you can usually access your University accounts through your own device. The University provides WiFi for getting online on campus so you can easily check you email and Desktop Anywhere allows you access to email and work on files saved on the network.
Use a Cluster Computer
The University has rooms of computers known as "clusters" that are available for students to use around campus. Staff may also use these when the rooms are not booked for teaching. You can also find printers & scanners in the clusters that you can use through the MyPrint system. There is more information on printing in the previous section.
NOTE: During coursework or exam periods clusters may be very busy.
Use a Cafe Computer
Some of the University Cafes have a small number of computers - these are not for long stays, but for quick access to check email for example. A list of the cafe computers can be found on the IT website.
IMPORTANT: If you're using a public computer, remember to log out when you have finished!
