Need help getting all your “IT” stuff sorted? We have your back

student-computing

We know that student computing plays a big part in life at UNI. Even though some of us might miss the scratch of the pen on the page and the sound of that page when it turns (anyone? No? Just me?), almost everything is done electronically and/or online these days. Knowing this, and because we like to be as helpful as possible, we’ve compiled all the information related to computing that you need on one website (which has had a facelift and looks quite fancy, by the way).

On the student computing website you’ll find information on available software, storing files, using your own devices on campus, training and support, and the Griffith App. Cool, huh?

Head on over to check it out and let us know what you think. Happy computing!
