Computer Cluster

An open-access computer cluster room (room 501) is located on the 5th floor opposite the library. This facility is available for the use of UCL staff and students and fully-registered inter-collegiate students only and is managed by ISD.


  • 19 Windows-based PCs with LCD TFT monitors
  • MFD printer, scanner and copier
  • Data projector
  • Front-facing access to USB ports
  • Headphone sockets
  • Cluster Myriad service


From October 2013, new MFDs (multi-functional devices) will be available throughout the Institute building and library allowing staff and current students to print, scan and copy in both colour and black and white. All three service are now offered in one stream-lined service through ISD and credit for copying and printing (scanning is free) can be obtained following the same routes.

There is a cash loader machine in the library for topping up student 'print' accounts. Accounts can also be topped up online using credit cards.

Information on charges, credit and general printing can be found on the ISD web pages

Access and room bookings

The 5th floor cluster is a 'public' cluster and is frequently booked for teaching throughout the year. When the room is in use for teaching, it is not available for walk-in use. Students are advised to always check availability on the listing displayed on the door, or through room bookings.
