• IT Essentials

    Whether a student or member of staff at Oxford Brookes you will use the same essential IT systems and services for teaching, learning or supporting the University's core business.

    If a student, you will be keen to get connected to the Wi-Fi (Brookes WiFi/eduroam) either in halls or around campus to check your email/timetable (we use Google) or  Moodle (our virtual learning environment). If living in hall you can use the wifi or connect to the wired internet access Hallnet. We also have some very useful bespoke mobile apps for finding your way around, catching a bus or finding an available PC to use.

    If a colleague, you will need to activate your email/calendar/documents account, get your mobile devices connected to eduroam and perhaps organise some IT training to familiarise yourself with the core business systems. You may also want to work flexibly and access University systems while working off site.

    All of us need to print at some point and the University offers a  Print Anywhere environment that has the advantages of multi-functional devices that allow you to collect your print from any device on any campus. An essential part of using print - as a student - is topping up your printing charge account.


    Is always available... should you need some help with anything IT-related, you can wander into an IT Service Desk Point (on any campus), use the web portal service.brookes.ac.uk or call x3311 (01865 48 3311 from a mobile).
