Computers on campus

Important notice about accessing PCs at Colchester Campus - you must now book a seat in advance

We have now re-opened some computer rooms on campuses with limited availability to meet University COVID-secure standards and social distancing guidelines.

There will be fewer computer rooms available this year as some have been reconfigured as teaching spaces.

Remaining computer rooms will be available for individual study, but you must book a seat in advance. This does not currently apply to Southend Campus.

This will ensure that the number of students in any one space is kept at a safe level. You can book a seat for up to four hours.

Using a computer room

  • Only PCs marked with green dots on the desks can be used. Maximum room capacity is displayed in each computer room; please do not exceed at any time.
  • Please ensure you clean all equipment before and after use, including the desk, arm rests on chairs, keyboard and mouse and anything else you have touched.
