IT Facilities for Undergraduate students

Computers for undergraduates are located in the Seeley Library, where there are 12 Managed Cluster Service (MCS) machines which are in the bays down the steps to the left, as you enter the library. They are free for students to use whenever the library is open and can be used for word processing, printing, web browsing and other applications. To log on to these you need your Cambridge login; The UIS website tells you how to Get started with IT at Cambridge and also gives information about accessing your Cambridge email and free and discounted software.


There is a printer in the Seeley Library. Printing is charged and you will need to pay in advance using your DS-Print account. To top up your account or check your balance, go to My DS-Print and log in.

Wireless networks

Wifi is available throughout the Faculty of History, using the UniOfCam Wireless Service or Eduroam.


Information Services provide useful information about cybersecurity, and how to spot online scams, specifically those aimed at students. Its definitely worth a read!
