Glyndŵr University has excellent computer facilities located close to where you need them within your subject or in the library and open access areas. A recent investment has expanded our WiFi wireless access across the whole campus.
All our computers have full internet access. We will provide you with a wide range of other IT facilities such as your own email account, file storage, standard and specialist applications and printing facilities.
We have 13 computer suites throughout the University. Most of these are for general open access use, although there are also a number of specialist IT labs for certain areas such as Computing, Engineering, and Art and Design.
Glyndŵr University uses the latest technology to the full. We have a comprehensive student intranet containing a range of advice and guidance. Many of our courses' lecture notes and programme content are available online through our Virtual Learning Environment. Many study materials such as online databases, e-journals and library catalogue information are available online from our campus computers. They can also be accessed at home should you prefer to study there.
IT Services provides convenient and effective help and advice on all aspects of computing including hardware, software and network access and use. You can also report faults with computing equipment connected to the University network. The IT Helpdesk in the library building (Edward Llwyd Centre) is the first point of call for all IT queries.
For more information about IT facilities and support, contact the IT helpdesk on 01978 293241 in the first instance.
During your time as a student at Glyndŵr University you may encounter many issues that make you think more deeply about some of life’s big questions (e.g. What should I do with my life? Why do people suffer? Does it matter if I believe in God? Why can’t people get on with each other?).
The chaplain is here to help you to think about these issues and to generally promote interest in the more spiritual side of life. In addition, a higher education chaplain (like a hospital chaplain) is there to offer the opportunity for support in any difficult times that arise for you during your time here.
Janice Jones is the Chaplain. She works ecumenically with other Christian denominations and connects to other faith communities. She is available to all staff and students to explore life and living. You can talk to the chaplain about anything at all. There is not even a need for the chaplain to know whether you are coming to discuss a relationship problem, the weekend hockey results or last Sunday’s Songs of Praise. One advantage of a chaplain being a general practitioner is that no-one need ever know why you called in.
Faith advisors are contact persons for your faith group, and they can talk to you about issues related to your particular faith, when the Chaplain is unable to help. Currently we have faith advisors for many of the Christian denominations and for Muslims, Hindus, Sikhs and Buddhists. We continue to make contact with representatives of other belief systems in order to add more advisors to this list.
The chaplaincy holds regular worship meetings, which are advertised on notice boards and on the student intranet. Links to local places of worship adds to the options available. As there is no chapel on campus arrangements cannot easily be made for baptisms and weddings. If you want help in sorting out weddings, baptisms, confirmations etc. with local churches, the chaplain can put you in touch with the relevant people.
The chaplaincy has a quiet space, situated on the second floor of the Edward Llwyd Centre, where you can pray, meditate or reflect. The space is open for all to use.
If you would like more information about the chaplaincy, including the groups and events we organise, please contact us.
