Computing facilities

  • As a UCT student, you will automatically receive a UCT email address and access to UCT's wired and wireless networks. For further information, read the ICTS page.
  • The Department has a Postgraduate Computing Lab (Room M4.04) which is open to Honours students. The machines in the PG Lab run Linux, which has a steep learning curve if you've spent your whole life in Windows or iOS. Fortunately, a lot of help for those wanting to learn Linux is available on the internet. There is a lot of software available on (and for) the PG Lab machines, including LaTeX. If you don't receive a login for the PG Lab, please contact Tanya Hannival.
