Computing & IT Facilities

The Computing & IT facilities can be used only by registered CITY College students and staff and for the purpose research, learning and education.

Furthermore, the academic departments provide additional facilities for their students, including computers in dedicated laboratories and subject-specific software. All computers are connected to the campus network, which is maintained by Computing Support Staff and provides access to the available software, services, and to the internet.



Access to Computing Facilities

To access all computers, students will need their authorized username and password provided to them during the Induction week by the Computing Centre. Once you have obtained your personal credentials you can log on to any computer in the ILC and access the internet, your email, and the library’s online catalogue and electronic resources.

Alumni, external members and day visitors use a “public_user” account, supplied by the Library Services Desk each time they visit the ILC.

Computing and IT facilities in the ILC include:

Silent PC Room

The Silent PC Room is equipped with PCs basically dedicated to research and literature searching in the electronic resources that the ILC is subscribed to. Users entering the Room are obliged to work in an absolutely silent environment. All PCs are equipped with the latest software applications and technology to facilitate the research in the various e-resources.

There is also a separate working area in the silent PC Room which students and staff can use for research with their own personal laptops or ipads.

The Silent PC Room is equipped with two printers (color, black and white) and a scanner.

PCs Working Area

The PCs Working Area is equipped with computers mainly for internet browsing, online catalogue (OpenABEKT) searching and for students’ assignments and project work.

In addition, the applications available on all of the computers include MS office suite, Intranet, and e-mail. The area is equipped with black & white and color printers and a scanner.
