|The LRC provides access to IT, computing and media facilities for all students for free. There is no charge to use or borrow equipment. |
PC access is provided in the LRCs at Huddersfield, Dewsbury, Wheelwright, Brunel and Engineering.
Using a Computer
At all our LRCs, you can just walk up and login to PCs with your normal student login information. Students are limited to 2 hours at a time to promote healthy PC usage.
The LRCs at Huddersfield Centre, Dewsbury Centre and Wheelwright Centre all use a PC booking system called MyPC. With MyPC, you can manage your time in advance and pre-book the PC you want, for the length of time you want (2 hour limit). LRC staff can book this for you, or you can log in to the MyPC website with your normal student login information and book a PC yourself.
The MyPC system lets the user manage their own time
more effectively and promotes fair usage of student facilities.
Printing in the LRC is extremely easy. Once you've sent your documents to the printer, you can collect it from any printer in the LRC using your student card - your documents won't print until you release them from the printer.

You can top up your printing credit at the LRC helpdesks using cash.
Currently, you cannot print directly from your own laptops or devices - you will need to log into a PC and print from there.
Media equipment loan service
Our LRCs have a range of media equipment for loan to students such as:
- Laptops, netbooks and tablets
- Flip and Disgo video cameras
- Digital cameras
- Voice recorders
- Desk top projectors
- Voting systems
You borrow these using the same account you use to borrow books and other resources - each item counts towards your 15 item limit.* With the exception of 3-hour loans on all netbooks, our equipment is usually available to borrow for one week at a time on a first-come first-served basis.**
*Items such as laptop and netbooks count as two borrowed items (1 laptop and 1 charger cable).
** Due to high demand, Huddersfield Centre's first-come first-served basis uses a waiting list.
