  • 4th Aug: Printing enabled on Print@UCL devices. PCs converted to UCL desktop (please use UCL username and password).
  • 1st Aug: New welcome desk installed.
  • August: gate access replaced by UCL card readers. UCL cards needed to access IOE and other UCL libraries.*
  • July: New workstations installed on L3.
