The Discipline of Information Technology has four dedicated computer labs for students taking courses with us. As an information technology student you will be provided with an account to access the computers in these labs.
The labs are:
- IT 101
- IT 101A
- IT 102
- IT 304
- IT 305
- IT 312
- IT 314
Computer Labs located elsewhere on campus can also be logged in to using your main NUIG account. These labs are managed by Information Solutions and Services and are more restricted, e.g. you cannot install new programs and you can only save to your network drive.
Please visit the ISS Campus Account page for detailed instructions on how to activate your account.
In addition to your Campus Account you also have a special IT Account. After you have activated your campus account visit this page and provide the information required. I.e. Your Student ID and your Date of Birth.
Don't forget, after your first login please change your account's password!
There are two network drives available to IT Strudents.
U:Drive - for more information visit the ISS Network Storage page.
F:Drive - this drive is available when you are logged into any of the IT Building labs listed above. This drive is provided so you can save your project work files and access them from any machine in the list. Storage space is limited to files necessary for your studies.
As a student of the Discipline of Information Technology you will be allocated a Print Quota. To check your remaining quota visit the Intranet page, you can find this link in Current Students section. This quota only applies to printers in the IT building's labs. For printers not located in the IT Building please visit the ISS Services for Students page for more information.
If a printer in the IT labs has run out of paper you can fetch a new ream on the fourth floor outside Tina Earls office (at the top of the stairs turn right). Please use duplex (double-sided) printing where possible and this can normally be set as default in the printer settings. Another helpful tip is you can print more than one lecture slide on a page to further reduce paper use.
Please respect your fellow students printing needs and restrict the printing of large documents to times when the lab is quiet.
When you leave the lab please check the print queue and cancel any of your pending print jobs.
If you find your printed document is too faded it is likely the printer has run out of toner. Please visit the Intranet and Report a Problem.
IT students also benefit from access to Microsoft DreamSpark Premium, VMware Academic Program (VMAP) and Visual Pardigm Academic Partner Programs.
