The Library has the following computers offering our registered users access to UCL and/or UCLH networks. The computers are available from 15 minutes after opening time, and until 15 minutes before closing time. 

  • UCLH network - to log in you must have UCLH credentials as the UCLH network is available only to UCLH staff. The PCs offer account holders access to the internet, Trust email, the clinical workstation, Word, Excel, etc. Always remember to log off after use.
  • desktop@ucl for UCL staff and students - to log in you must have UCL credentials. Our desktop@ucl workstations can be retracted into the desk to double up as a study space. ION students can also access desktop@ucl computers in the two cluster rooms at 7 Queen Square, as well as in other UCL Libraries.
