6 incredibly useful tools every student should know about


Computing Services (CSD) have developed a host of apps and tools that will help you to navigate through your studies and around campus.

More information about these tools and other IT services is available via the Computing Services website. You can also follow them on Twitter @liverpoolCSD or via their blog for all the latest IT news, updates and alerts.

PC Finder

If you need to find a computer on campus, use the PC Finder tool to find out how many computers are available and where to find them across campus. You can also use the tool to filter for specific equipment, such as a scanner, or adjoining desks so you can work next to a friend.

Building Finder

The Building Finder app can help you to find your way around campus. Download the tool to get directions from your location to the building you are travelling to.

M: Drive for secure file storage

Once you have activated your University computing account, you will have your own work space, called your M: Drive. When you save your work to this space, you can access it wherever you are – including from your own computer,. Plus, all your files are fully backed up and secure.

Wi-Fi / eduroam

Eduroam is the University’s free Wi-Fi network. If you have already activated your computing account, you can connect to Wi-Fi on your device by using the Wireless Wizard.

Print Anywhere

If you’re using your own laptop in the Library, or working from your room before you visit campus, you can use Print Anywhere to send your work to one of our printers and collect it as normal when you’re ready.
