Computing Laboratories

Appleton Tower Labs

This is a list of rooms hosting DICE computing facilities for Informatics students. As well as desktop machines, some under flip desks, there are a number of network ports for connecting laptops.

These are available to all Informatics students 24 hours a day, with swipe card access required for most areas.

Some of these rooms are regularly used for teaching classes: the online booking schedule shows which rooms are free when.

If you encounter any problem with a DICE machine, please report this using the Computing Support Form.
