Please note: The Poole House OAC is currently only open from 8am-8pm, Monday-Sunday.
You will need to book your space in advance via MyPC whatever time you want to use it. You can book these computers up to seven days in advance to allow you to plan your studies. The facilities have been arranged to support the safe use of the computers and printers with physical distancing measures in place, so capacity is limited at this time.
- Talbot Campus - The Poole House OAC (PG22 - ground floor) is a large computer lab with Windows PCs which is available for all BU students to use, open 7 days a week, all year round. You will need your student ID card to access the OAC outside of usual working hours of 9am - 5pm.
- Lansdowne Campus - The Studland House OAC is currently closed. You can however use computers in the Bournemouth Gateway Building computer room (BG-G16) during building opening hours and outside of timetabled teaching in this room. Laptop Loans are also available in Bournemouth Gateway Building.
- You can also book library PCs at both Talbot and Lansdowne Campuses.
Each machine has the core BU applications, including Microsoft Office, the Adobe CC suite and SPSS, and can be used with either staff or student credentials. You can also use the AppsAnywhere portal on all BU Windows computers, giving you access to software relevant to your course. There are also colour and black and white printers with scanners available at both locations - find out about printing your work.
