Students working in the Jack Kilby Computer Centre

Computers on campus

We have computers available for you to use on each of our 3 campuses in the dedicated computer suites as well as the campus libraries.

In these areas you’ll find Windows PCs, thin client PCs and Apple Macs, as well as spaces for you to plug in your own devices.  You can even borrow a laptop from one of our Lapsafe lockers. 

Multi-function devices (MFDs) enable you to print, copy and scan - these can be found in each of the computer suites and campus libraries.

Accessing a computer

Before you come on campus you will need to book a computer using our Resource Booker system.

When you come on to campus bring along your student card as you may need it to access the computer suites.

Once you’re at a computer you can log in using your Edinburgh Napier student number and password.
