Student computer labs

About the labs

The Student Computer Labs are located on Level 1 of Building 17 on the Wollongong campus and provide students with access to email, web, applications software and printing.

In addition to these services, the teaching laboratories contain special purpose software for tutorials run by individual departments. When there are no tutorials scheduled, teaching laboratories may be used by any UOW student (please check the tutorial timetable available online or outside each lab).
