Here’s a bit of information about the computer facilities – you’ll need these for your assignments (not just for social networking!)
Please find links below to our video guides and information leaflets to help you get started with our IT systems at Writtle University College.
Each student receives their own network account and email address. Your user ID is your student number, and initially your password will be Wuc followed by your date of birth in DDMMYYYY format (e.g. 15 December 2000 would be Wuc15122000). You are advised to change this password as soon as possible.
USING YOUR OWN COMPUTER
You can bring your own computer onto campus. Ensure you have adequate anti-virus protection and all updates to the operating system, applications etc. have been applied. The IS&T Support Desk can assist in troubleshooting problems on personal PCs. This service is free and as such is limited in terms of the amount of time spent on each individual problem – you may be referred to an external company for assistance. Some software is available for use on your own PC. Your lecturers will inform you when a specific piece of software is required and whether it is available to you. Media/licensing information can be obtained from the Library.
From September 2023, all students will be required to have an appropriate laptop for their studies at Writtle University College. There are a number of important considerations that you should take into account to ensure that you have a suitable machine and are able to run the software provided as part of your course.
During the rest of your time at Writtle please feel free to contact the support desk (U51 in the Main Building) with any issues or queries you may have between 9am and 5pm Monday to Friday.
