Canterbury - Augustine House.


Augustine House is the Library and Student Services Centre and houses over 200 open access PC's for student use as well as being the home of the i-Borrow scheme which adds an extra 200 self service Netbook laptops (i-Borrows) for students to use throughout the building in whichever learning space they wish. Based on a 'help yourself and return to the recharging point' model, students are expected to self-manage this provision. The laptops are located in cabinets next to the Multi-functional printers on each floor of the building. The machines only work within the building as they are totally reliant on the specific capability of its wireless network.

In addition the entire building is wireless enabled, allowing students to access the University's Network via Eduroam, using their own laptops or the i-Borrows. Please see eduroam information for instructions on connecting your laptop.

There are also 5 private group study rooms available to book, each have a laptop and projector with large screen.
