Information for new arrivals

PhD students - Welcome to the Computer Lab

Information Pack for new PhD Students

The Information Pack for new PhD Students provides most of the information you will need to know about being a PhD student at the Lab. All of this information is also available on the Computer Lab webpages.

If you are new to the Computer Lab, you will probably have more information thrown at you than you can reasonably be expected to remember.

We have produced these pages to help you find your way around the lab, find out things you may not already know and point you in the direction of people who can help you should you need it.

Getting started

When you first arrive at the lab, you will want to know about your office and your computer - which you will not be able to access without your CRSID account.

You will find out information concerning these and other issues such as network connections, personal laptops, printing and email in the Getting Started webpage.

The general information webpage provides links to the important information you may need to know during your stay in the lab.

You may also find the A-Z guide of use as it covers everything a student at the Computer Lab should need to know.

Getting to know people in the lab is the quickest route to settling in.
For this reason, and many more, the Lab holds a Happy Hour every Friday evening. Here you will meet people from all areas of the Lab whom you perhaps might not otherwise meet.

Being a PhD student - the basics

In the PhD - the basics page, you will find answers to questions such as: what are research groups, principal supervisors and graduate tutors, amongst others.


Finally, but most importantly, you will be wanting to know what resources are available to you and the rules, regulations and code of practice for your PhD studies. You should find most, if not all, of what you need on the Resources for PhD students and their supervisors page.
