Lincoln College

IT Facilities

There are three Student Computing Rooms, one in the Bear Lane complex for the exclusive use of MCR members, one in Lincoln House which is primarily for the JCR and a third in the EPA Centre in Museum Road. Each room has PCs loaded with an assortment of general purpose software including Microsoft Office, Firefox,  Graphics software plus the usual email and other accessories.

Each room has a networked printer. Please do not monopolise these machines if the room is busy. Note that while the system as a whole is regularly backed up the College can accept no responsibility for data which is lost. All Students will be allocated an account on the system which also allows use of the Library photocopier and network printing system. Instructions on using the copier are available here. You can print to any of the network printers using the Remote Print Facility; you will need your Lincoln userid and password to access the system.

All of the rooms in the main College, Turl St and High St have ethernet ports, as do the Museum Rd properties. You will need an ethernet cable to use the network; these may be purchased through the IT office if you do not already have one. You will be asked to register your details the first time you connect to the network.
