5 very useful tools every student should know about

Mobile phone

There are lots of tools and apps available at the University that will help you to navigate through your studies and around campus. Here is our top 5 pick:

1. PC Finder

Finding an available computer on campus has never been easier! January is a busy time on campus, so give yourself the best chance of getting a PC and use the PC Finder tool. Download the app to find out how many computers are available and where to find them across campus. You can also use the app to filter for specific equipment, such as a scanner, or adjoining desks so you can work next to a friend.

2. Speed Stations

In response to student feedback the University set up an area of Speed Stations within the Rendall Building which are designed for quick tasks like printing, checking email or websites – anything which will tie a PC up for less than half an hour.

3. Print Anywhere

If you’re using your own laptop in the Library, need to print something from your phone, or are 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.

4. Building Finder app

In a hurry to get somewhere or not sure where your exam is taking place? Download the Building Finder app and it can help you to find your way around campus. It will give you directions from your location to the building you are travelling to.

5. Pass the Book

Finished with a book or need a new one for next semester? Pass the Book is a service designed for students at the University to buy, sell or donate their textbooks to other students. All you need to do is register with the site and you can get started. Books can be deposited at, or collected from, the library and all payments are made through PayPal so there’s no need to share contact details or payment details.
