MyPC Booking System

We are piloting the MyPC booking system in the Purple Room of the Main Library building.  Between 08:00 and 18:00 Monday - Friday (Peak Time) you will be able to book a PC in the Purple Room for up to 2 hours.  Outside of these times you can book a PC for up to 4 hours.  You can make the booking up to 2 days in advance.  On a 2 hour booking you have the option to extend your booking once for up to 30 minutes as long as long as it doesn't overlap any future bookings for that PC.  After you booking ends you will need to wait 30 minutes before making a new one.

Please be aware, the system will be unavailable after 11:40pm each evening.

If you don't log in within 15 minutes of the start of your booking it will be cancelled.

Providing there are no imminent bookings on a PC you can also walk up and use it for the time periods shown above. 

As we are evaluating the system these settings may be changed based on the feedback we receive.
