What are they?
The Assistive Technology Booths (ATBs) are accessible, single occupancy rooms available for use by students with disabilities, specific learning difficulties or medical condition. They provide a selection of assistive software and hardware that couldn't practically be provided on the regular Classroom Computers.
To learn more about the benefits of the available software and hardware and for training, please contact the Assistive Technology Team.
Please note that Library Booth 108 now houses a specialist book scanner. Go here for more information.

How to Access Them
Each booth has proximity card access that is linked to a permissions list that we maintain. If you have been given permission to use these booths, you can hold your card up to the door locks to gain entry.
If you are not on this list and would like to have access to the booths, please discuss this with a Disability Adviser or the Assistive Technology Team.
How to book a booth
All of the booths can be booked in advance using our online booking system.
We would ask you to be mindful of the needs of other students when booking and using the booths. Click the links below for some guidelines and Do's and Don'ts. Note that there are certain restrictions to when and for how long you can book a booth. This is intended to prevent booth 'hogging'.
Each of the booths has a PC, printer and scanner situated on an electrically operated height adjustable desk. The PC is the same as the Classroom Computers with access to the usual University resources and software. In addition to this they provide access to additional software and hardware to enhance overall provision.
