Eduroam allows students, researchers and staff from participating institutions to obtain Internet connectivity across campus
Here at the RAU, we know IT is an integral part of our students’ lives, both for learning and research, and also for relaxing and communicating with family and friends.
IT facilities on Campus
The University offers four computer rooms, one open 24 hours a day, with Wi-Fi access available in all teaching and accommodation areas.
With over 140 Windows PCs available, all with Microsoft Office 365, Genstat, SPSS, Read and Write 9, Mindgenius and SensusAccess (to name but a few applications), there are plenty to go around.
There are black and white and colour printers available in the Library and the computer rooms.
We also provide a wide range of specialised software, including geographical information systems and agricultural management packages.
IT facilities for disabled students
The University provides a range of facilities for students that need extra support, including a text magnifier. Assistive software such as Read &Write, Mind Genius and SensusAcess is available on all PCs, while Dragon Naturally Speaking can provide assistance in exam situations.
IT facilities in residences
Wi-fi is available in all accommodation areas, and all residential rooms on campus have a network socket.
Students using their own mobile devices
All students are able to bring their own laptops, tablets, and smartphones and use our network both for academic purposes and for personal internet access. Free copies of Microsoft Office 365 are available to all registered students for downloading onto their mobile devices.
A full range of ‘how to’ guides are available to help everyone get started.
Our IT Service Desk is located in the Library foyer and is open from 8.30 to 5.30 every weekday.
