About the Computing laboratory

The David Barron computing laboratory is a dedicated facility for computer science and software students to use for individual and project work. It's a lively, communal space, where you'll find support from both a programming help desk for programming-related questions, and IT help desk for other queries.

The lab also features social areas which students often use for activities outside of their studies, such as the Global Game Jam, as well as career events and workshops.
