What facilities do IT Services Clusters offer?

A Standardised Image

The IT Services Cluster Software Image is standardised as much as possible across IT Services computer clusters and site libraries. The standard image allows users to move from location to location and have the same base applications available to them. 

Assistive Software

Most of our Cluster PCs provide access to assistive software which provide screen magnification, screen reading, literacy and mind-mapping software.  For more information please visit the Assistive Software pages on this site through the link below.

Printing Facilities

Most of our computer clusters have printing facilities available for every PC.  The majority of cluster printing facilities are linked into the Charged Printing system which allows users to set up a credit account to pay for their printing and photocopying needs across campus.  For more information on the Charged Printing System please visit the Charged Printing pages on this site through the link below:
