The College has a computer room in the basement of the Walton building, within the Advanced Studies Centre, with a number of networked PCs, a multifunctional colour copier / scanner and provides Internet access, Office applications and a range of other software.

User space on the College filestore
All students when logged in will have access to the College filestore, for saving work on the College servers. This filestore is personal and secure, and is backed up to tape on a regular basis. Your can save your files either in 'My Documents', on the 'Desktop' or if you open 'My Computer' there is a drive mapped as S:. The My documents and Desktop folders within S: are the same as those you see on your desktop, so do not delete these folders!
Students have a server disk allocation of 500MB. Please only use this for work files, try not to fill the server up with your music collection, etc. This server is backed up to tape on a regular basis, so I recommend keeping a fairly recent copy of important work you can't afford to lose on the College server. If you need more space, please contact the IT office to arrange this.
