Bigger, better computer labs for Wagga in 2015

Bigger, better computer labs for Wagga in 2015


A larger, multifunctional 24-hour computer hub is now available to students and staff at Charles Sturt University (CSU) in Wagga Wagga.

The $1.8 million makeover has transformed and extended the existing study space on level one of the Learning Commons building. Teaching space inside the hub replaces dated computer labs in the Jack Cross Centre.

The hub design incorporates functionality that caters to modern-day teaching methods. There are four dedicated teaching labs, each with flexible working areas – a mix of fixed computers and powered desk space for bring-your-own devices, such as laptops or tablets. These rooms will be prioritised for lessons and made available outside of timetabled classes as general computer space or collaboration areas. Rooms will be bookable and timetabled through CSU timetabling.

Students can also make use of additional breakout study areas for solo or group study sessions at any time.

The computer hub also has a new entrance, on the southern side of the building, improving access to and from The Hub/Crow Bar and student services at Building 20.

The hub is fitted with CCTV cameras and will be swipe-card accessible.

Existing kitchen facilities on level one of the Learning Commons will service the new area.
