Undergrads get all-day access to clusters

Two computing clusters are to be opened for 24-hour access by undergraduate students, in a pilot project unveiled by Information Systems Services. The increasing use of IT in teaching and learning has created a demand for extended access hours beyond the normal 8am to 9pm term-time availability.

Postgraduates already have 24-hour access to 140 PC and Unix machines in the Bragg, EC Stoner and Irene Manton clusters. As these clusters are wheelchair accessible, they will now be open to undergraduate wheelchair users as well.

An additional 106 seats have been made available for all students, located in West teaching lab 3 in the new geography building and in the Richard Hughes room in the textiles building.
