  Audio Tours

Take a self-guided audio tour of your Computer Suite or Library and find what you need to help your studies. All you need is a smartphone or tablet connected to the internet and some headphones. Students can use the University’s free wi-fi service, eduroam. 

Where do I start the tour?

Near the Help Desk in each Computer Suite or Library you will see a notice like this:
 
Audio Tour Sample Poster


Scan the QR code with your smartphone or tablet to start listening to the first part of the audio tour. Or go to the link at the bottom of the poster and select the tour you want.
 
 

How do I get a QR code reader on my phone?

 
If your phone doesn’t already have a QR code reader app, you can quickly download one. Many are free eg. Red Laser for iPhone and Barcode Scanner for Android.

If you need help connecting to Wi-Fi, see Wireless Service​.
 
 

How long does the tour last?

 
It’s up to you! You can take as long as you like to do the tour. There’s no rush, and you can do the tour at a time that suits you during the opening hours of the Computer Suite or Library.
