Auckland campus is closed at COVID-19 Alert Level 3. More information.
Every Campus Library has a Wāhi Rorohiko (Computer Zone) where you can sign in to use the computers.
The computers in the Library have the same range of software and applications as in the general student computing labs. Library and ITS staff provide support for many of these, though not all.
No additional software or plug-ins may be installed on the computers.
Computers are available on a first-come first-served basis. Computers may not be reserved, except by Library staff. Computers unattended for more than 20 minutes may be signed out by Library staff and made available for other users.
Use of the computers should be in accordance with the University’s Use and Access to Information Technology Systems Policy. Please limit activities that are not course-related (e.g. social networking, email) at peak times or when others are waiting to use computers.
It is important you sign out after using the computers otherwise other users may access your files and use your budget. Click the "Start" button on the bottom left-hand corner of the screen, then click on your user name from the menu, and select the sign out option.
Any data that is not saved (e.g. to your OneDrive, H: drive, USB drive, cloud storage) will be deleted when you sign out.
MobilePrint allows you to print from any internet-capable device (e.g. laptops, tablets, phones) to any FollowMe printing Fuji Xerox device on the same campus.
For instructions please see MobilePrint.
If you have any printing problems please ask at the Service Point.
In order to print, your network account balance must be in credit. Some course coordinators provide students with a computer budget as part of their course.
Money may be added to network accounts at the Library’s Service Point (cash or EFTPOS) or using the EFTPOS workstations. Cashiers in the Registry Building / Contact Centres can also add money to network accounts.
Credit cards (Visa or Mastercard) may be used to add money to network accounts online through the student homepage.
Note that GST is deducted at the time you pay money into your network account.
You can check your account balance through the student homepage.
Files may be saved to your H: drive (which is backed up to a server each night), to cloud storage (such as OneDrive), or to your own portable storage device (e.g. USB drive, external hard drive).
We recommend that you back up your files to a safe location, such as your H: drive or OneDrive. USB drives are frequently lost. You should also save work regularly during each session, since at times there may be unexpected network disruption.
All unsaved files will be deleted when you log off from your session (this includes any files saved to the desktop).
If you wish to save documents received by email, click on "Save" rather than "Open" when you are prompted to download the attached file, otherwise you may lose your document.
Massey students and staff can connect free to the Massey wireless networking services provided by Information Technology Services. Commercial wireless ISP networks are available for visitors.
