Get Connected

In-person mobile device and service support sessions for new students.

Information Services runs a number of special 'Get Connected' sessions for new students during the first 2 weeks of term in September and January each year aimed at getting them up-and-running with University services and assisting in setting up their mobile devices (e.g. laptops, phones). These are walk-up sessions and do not require a booking.

 

The 'Get Connected' session for start-of-year in September has now finished. Please check back here in January for the next set of dates.
