We stock a selection of basic stationery items which can be purchased at the LRC counter When you enrol you are given a College network account and email address. It is important to check your College email regularly as we will use it to communicate with you. At the start of your course you will have an IT induction where all this and much more will be explained to you. The Learning Resources Centres are for quiet study, so please respect the needs of others while working there. The College operates an ICT Acceptable Use Policy, which will be explained to you during your IT induction. Any student found using the internet or any IT resource in an irresponsible manner will be subject to disciplinary action.
