Rate: $0

Our public computers are available during opening hours, and offer standard office & home apps & software;

  • The current version of Windows

Limited assistance may be available (subject to availability) from Winch House volunteers and staff, check with Reception.

Both desktop and laptop computers are available, however, laptops do need to remain on site and are best for when you need a computer in another room eg. for a class or presentation. All computers have a standard wired mouse and keyboard, and speakers for sound if wanted. If you'd like to listen privately, for health reasons it would be best to bring your own headphones (with standard 3.5mm stereo audio connector).

It is important to know that all public computers are going to be used by multiple different people. The computers are NOT cleared and reset after each use. Accordingly, be careful not to save personal information such as passwords, documents, images or forms on a public computer, in case someone else can see and use it. Check with staff/volunteers if you aren't sure.

* Printing incurs an additional charge per sheet of paper used by the printer, regardless of what is on the sheet.

Note that each time you use any of our resources, you are required to comply with the associated policy or policies. Use of a resource does mean that you agree to abide by the related policy/policies, even if you aren't required to sign anything.
