SMSR: getting in

In addition to the general information on this page, please note the COVID server room access arrangements which apply at the present time.

Access is normally granted freely to those who have machines in the rooms, but not to anyone else.

The doors use swipe and PIN. Please ask computing support for access, giving your swipe card number ('100100...'). Please send this as a separate request so that the necessary actions can take place in parallel with any other work you might ask for. If you are a student, please be sure to include the name of your supervisor.

An alarm will go off if the door is held open for more than 15 seconds; if you think you'll need to open the door for longer, please contact support beforehand.

Once your card is enabled and your machine installed, you should be able to do all necessary management tasks yourself. However, please feel free to send in a support request if you'd like assistance with something.
