Using laptops

Power for laptops

It is possible to plug in laptops in most areas of the LRC. Where a socket is not readily available, or plugging in would cause a hazard to other LRC users, laptops should be used on battery power.

Network access

It is possible to connect laptops to the wireless network throughout the building. However, the large blocks of bookshelves can affect the signal strength in certain areas. Every effort has been made to provide as wide a coverage as possible in the vicinity of the study desks.
