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.
All our students are able to bring their own laptops, tablets and smartphones and use our network for academic purposes and for personal internet access. Free copies of Office365 are available for downloading onto these devices.
We also have four computer rooms, one open 24 hours a day, while Wi-Fi access is available across the whole campus, (including all accommodation blocks), so that all our students have access to a high speed internet connection from any computer anywhere on campus.
And with over 140 Windows PCs available to our students, all with Microsoft Office 365, Genstat, SPSS, Read and Write 9 and Mindgenius (to name but a few applications), there are plenty to go round. We also provide a wide range of specialised software, including geographical information systems and agricultural management packages.
All lecture presentations and other teaching resources are available on Gateway, our virtual learning environment, which our students can access from anywhere in the world at any time of the day or night.
Our students also have their own printing accounts, with black and white and colour printers available in the Library and the computer rooms, to which they can also print from their own devices.
