PCs for suites, teaching spaces and labs

Information for University staff responsible for setting up, expanding or coordinating PC facilities

If you are setting up a PC suite, or a multi-PC facility in a teaching space or lab, please contact the Digital IT Service Desk who will register your requirement as a project request.

Teaching Space Standard Hardware specification

PCs in this category usually have a range of specialist software products installed on them for learning purposes. Furthermore, software titles are frequently added to and removed from the catalogue of products that are installed on PCs in this category. For those reasons, these PCs have a new disk image loaded onto them every summer.

Site-licenced software

The University is licenced to deploy certain ‘utility’ software products on any University-owned PCs, by way of site licences. In particular, Microsoft Office products are deployed on University PCs as standard. Depending on the PC’s purpose, further site-licenced products may be included as standard.
