If your booking is not accepted, and there are no conflicting bookings, please contact: support at

As there is now remote access available to this lab – following the booking rules is not just good manners!

  • Book only the times you will actually be using the computer.
  • Book in single day bookings, unless you are running a large processing job that really will be running for 24+ hours.
  • Cancel bookings you made and are not using.
  • Use the Calendar if you are using a computer in person – by dropping in or because you planned to!
  • Use the Calendar if you are using a computer remotely – spur of the moment or because you planned to!
  • If you are in the lab and there is nobody seated in front of a computer, that does NOT mean it is not being used.
  • Computers will be restarted regularly, but do a restart if you need to. Please make sure the computer is on when you leave it. If you think you may have accidentally shutdown a computer, contact support at
