IT facilities

The University provides a huge range of IT facilities, including desktop and laptop computers running the latest, most up-to-date software.

You can also access printing facilities, scanners, as well as specialised hardware dedicated to improving your education.

On campus computer facilities

Over 3,000 computers are available for your use in general access areas, which include dedicated labs, libraries and student hubs located at Callaghan, Ourimbah, Sydney, Tamworth and City precinct.

Student computers are available at our Port Macquarie campus and Singapore, but you will need to check with your local IT support team for further information.

Computer labs, locations and opening hours

You can also borrow a laptop, although they are only for use in the library from which you borrowed it.

Student printing

You can print to student network printers from any of the general access areas, which include dedicated labs, libraries and Student Central. In most cases your printing will be automatically sent to the closest printer. Depending on your location, you can choose to print in colour or black and white, as well as on A4 or A3 paper.
