Churchill College offers a wide range of computing facilities and services. There are several computer areas available for students and Fellows, which run the University's Managed Cluster Service. The JCR Computer Room provides 8 PCs and the Lloyd's Room provides 10 PCs. In addition, there is a computer area for Fellows near the Senior Combination Room which provides an additional 2 PCs.
The College also offers colour as well as black and white laser printing facilities.
Every student room on-site has a 100Mbit wired connection to the College network, and the same type of connections are also available in all of the hostels on the main College site. These connections give access to Churchill's computing facilities, and also to the University and to the Internet.
Those hostels not on the main College site are provided with wired or wireless broadband connections.
A wireless networking facility operates throughout most of the main buildings including the bar, the libraries and the theatre, and throughout all of the staircases, the Sheppard Flats, and many of the College hostels on Storey's Way. This facility is provided by the University Wireless system, which gives access to eduroam, UniOfCam and our guest wireless. We are in the process of rolling out the wireless coverage across the remaining accommodation on the main site, the Wolfson Flats and the Pepperpots.
These are some of the questions most frequently asked about the computing facilities at Churchill. Many of the answers may seem obvious, but they are the most common causes of the problems listed and are always worth checking first.
