Using the hardware in our teaching rooms
IT & IS supports approximately 130 teaching spaces across our campus, with facilities ranging from a mobile TV unit to 300-seat lecture theatres.
You will find an identical touch screen beside an input panel for your laptop or USB stick in each teaching room.
Every room has a built-in PC and Apple Mac computer that can be selected from the touch screen.
Smaller rooms include a wireless connection for PC, Mac, iOS or Android devices that allow presentation without a log-in or cables, and larger rooms are equipped with digital overhead projectors.
Our larger teaching spaces have recording facilities, surround sound and granular lighting controls
Should you require assistance with any of the technology in the classrooms, the IT Service Desk will be pleased to advise you or arrange an appointment with one of our AV technicians to run through the equipment.
All of our supported classrooms are proactively monitored and faults resolved before and after teaching commences.
Should you discover an issue during your teaching please contact us on x7626 (every classroom has a telephone installed). If we're unable to get you up and running over the phone, our Field services team will assist you in the classroom.
Please make sure that you log off the built-in PC or Mac at the end of your teaching session, and power down the AV equipment using the touch screen controls. Please do not switch off, unplug or reconfigure any of the AV equipment in the space as doing so will prevent the next class from starting smoothly.
Connecting your own device
Please note that we provide HDMI and VGA connections only in our classrooms, so if your device requires an adapter you will need to bring one with you. The IT Service Desk offers adapters for Mini Displayport and USB-C devices for sale or loan through the equipment loan service.
