Computing Information


The Red-Centre labs are currently closed due to the COVID-19 situation. 

General Information

The School of Mathematics and Statistics has one of the largest collections of computing facilities on campus. We have two student laboratories, containing a network of approximately 150 personal computers (PCs).

The School's laboratories are in rooms G012 and M020 of the Red Centre. Room M020 is through the glass door (and along the corridor), opposite the School's entrance to the Red Centre. Room G012 is down the stairs from the main entrance.

For further details see the Computing Facilities page.

Opening Times

Both of the School's laboratories are open from 8am to 9pm Monday to Friday during the teaching semester, unless they are being used for other purposes (for example if they are booked for classes or being used or set up for computer based tests). The labs are not open on the weekends.

Outside of the teaching semester, only lab M020 will be open, and only from 8am to 9pm Monday to Friday.

On public holidays and when the University is closed (e.g. over the Christmas/New Year period), both labs will be closed.
