Getting ready for the start of term: Our IT booklet for students


How to access all the IT and Library support you need to study on and off-campus

Whether you're a new student or returning to university after a break, there's a lot to remember at the start of the academic year.

To help you to get settled, we've published a booklet for students which is designed to help you get to know our IT and Library services.

Here you can find information about your university account, password management, a wide range of resources available to you on and off campus, and how to get help when you need it.
