Student Computer Labs

You can find current information on Lab Bookings, Hardware and Software Availability in each lab as well as a live feed of images of computer labs throughout the campus. You can use the information to schedule your visit to the computer labs without being disappointed to find the lab full when you arrive.


There are three Student Computer Labs located across campus available to all undergraduate students, free of charge.

Burke Sciences

Kenneth Taylor Hall

To log into the computers use your MACID account. These Centres offer printing and scanning services and are staffed by Student Consultants who can help you with computing issues.
