- Bring your own laptop?
-- you may if you want but it is not actually necessary. We are using
University PCs and they should be working OK and have Internet access.
We tested them, they seem fine. However you might prefer your own laptop
as well. The University will give you a temporary access code but you'd
have to check your own email via webmail. There is wireless access at
the course. At the accommodation there is wired access (you'd need to
bring or buy a standard cat5 cable) and may be wireless access depending
on where in the building... If you don't bring a laptop you may still
prefer to bring a USB mouse so you know it won't be sticky and grunged
up though the PC centre we're using seemed fine today.
Where are we?
The course is taught in University teaching facilities in the Chadwick
Tower, ground floor (building 42 on this
map) with full PC support. Meet up on the first day in the cafe on
the ground floor.
The University is in the heart
of town near the two cathedrals.
