The Computer Labs - Location
There are two computer labs on Level Two of the ITD building. Just go up the stairs (or the lift), follow the corridor around and look for the signs above the doors.
You can use the labs whenever they are not being used for teaching. A sign on the door of each lab shows the bookings for each two week period. All three labs have two doors. Always use the door with the UNE Card reader next to it. Just push the door (hard) to enter. The other door is for emergency use only and is locked.

Getting Access After Hours
The labs are available for your use 24 hours per day, seven days a week. Outside normal working hours you will need to use your UNE Card to gain access to the ITD building and to the labs.
After hours the sliding doors at either end of the IT Building are locked - use the adjacent hinged doors with the UNE Card readers. The doors to the labs are also locked after hours and you also use your UNE Card to get in.
Getting Out of the Building
In the labs you can always get out the door you came in, it can't be locked. In an emergency you can also get out of the other lab door by breaking the emergency release next to the door. In the corridors there are exit signs. You can go out of the building the way you came in. If it is after hours then the sliding glass doors will be locked. You can open them by pressing the red button next to the door. You can also get out the hinged doors. Turn the handle to open the door. There are also two rear fire stairs. At the end of each of the short corridors there is a door into a stairwell. At the bottom of each stair well is a door to the outside.
The ITD building is fully air-conditioned. After hours the air-conditioning turns off. There are After Hours switches to turn it on again on the wall near the lift. To the left of the lift are two switches. The lower one is for the labs. The air-conditioning will run for two hours then turn off again.
There are toilets on both level one and level two. On level one there is a disabled toilet at the rear of the short corridor at the eastern (Library) end of the building. One level two there is a disabled toilet between the male and female toilet. It has an interlock to ensure privacy.
There are vending machines along the rear corridor on level one.
On the third level of the ITD building are offices and equipment for staff who maintain the UNE computer network and the central computers and systems. Access to this level is restricted. Unless you have some reason to go to level three you should stay on levels one and two. If you do need to go to level three you use the lift. Remember that your access to the computers in the ITD building and on campus is subject to the Rules for the Use of Computing Facilities . These are printed in the front of the UNE Handbook.
