Computing and software availability at the University
You'll find computers available to use in the Learning Resources Centres (LRCs) and computing labs across both campuses.
Lots of students choose to use their own laptops and devices with power and Wi-Fi easily accessible across campus.
As well as 24/7 access to PCs and Macs in our LRCs, all Herts students and staff can borrow a laptop (Chromebook) while on campus. Students may also apply for a longer term PC loan (terms and conditions apply). For more information on how to apply, collect, what’s included and usage, visit our Computer loans for students page.
If you are a supported student who needs adjustments to any part of the service please contact Disability Services.
If you do not have the financial means to buy your own computer and a computer loan does not meet your study needs, there’s a range of financial help available to eligible students at the University of Hertfordshire.
