Information Services

IADT’s is committed to educational, research and development activities across a wide range of sectors, from technology to humanities to the creative arts. We recognise the importance of stimulating creativity and innovation, and we also value the individual needs of staff and students in their daily lives.

Technology is at the heart of IADT, and information communication technology is a vital part of staff and student life here at IADT.

All students have access to high-speed internet, computers, printing, student email and file storage as well as a wide range of online services.

 

Computer Labs, SWS + Wi-Fi

Almost all PC and Mac labs across the campus are open access and once no teaching or project time has been scheduled in the computer lab (check the timetable on the door) any student can use the computers in the computer lab. There is also numerous "Student Work Stations" PCs (SWS) across the campus which are handy for accessing email, the internet, printing and doing project work with your colleagues. The Library also hosts over 60 PC's and Mac's which are available to all students. All the main campus buildings are wireless enabled, as is the courtyard and we will be extending/improving the wireless to the Orchard and other outdoor spaces over the next few months.

 

Printing + Reprographics

IADT's Print and Reprographics Service is a sustainable and highly available print service that allows IADT's staff and students to print, copy and scan to email quickly and easily. Visit the Printing Section to learn more about the print services
