The Computing Unit comprises 6 teaching rooms and a number of general access machines and space for laptop users. All machines run Mac OS X and Windows, you can select which when the machine starts up. You are expected to vacate the teaching spaces if a class is commencing.
General access machines can be used as much as you desire. The facilities are designed to be a resource for your learning and it is expected you will restrict yourself to such uses. Each room has some flatbed scanners available.
General UTS labs are available in building 1 [Tower], 2, 5 [Market campus], 10 and at the library. No food or drinks are to be consumed in any computing lab area.

Students are responsible for storing and backing up their own files. Each computer has a space called “Student Work” where files can be stored and a network volume called “public” where you can transfer files from one computer to another.
Both storage areas are volatile, everyone can access and delete files, and they do. Do not store the only copy of your assignment in either place.
All the computers in the Computing Unit have USB and Firewire connectors for external storage devices. The Computing Unit generally recommends USB memory devices.
There are support staff in the offices on the mezzanine level that you can ask for help with technical issues. The support staff are not there to teach you how to use software.
