It is an end of an era for Computing Services as today the last of the Computing Services teams move in to their new home in 6 West. Originally the South West Universities Regional Computer Centre (SWURCC) machine room, 2 South has been a key building within the University over its 50 year history and it has gone through many changes since then.
In July 2016, the majority of Computing Services teams moved over to our state of the art building, 4 East South, and this left a few teams – some IT Supporters, Information Management and IT Training in 2 South.
Now it is our turn to be on the move.
I am really looking forward to the launch of our new IT Training Suite which will provide a flexible, modern and comfortable space for the wide range of IT training courses we offer. Having the IT Supporters and Service Desk staff close by will aid communication and encourage greater collaboration with the Information Management and Training teams.
6 West provides a whole host of opportunities for us in User Services to continually improve our customer service and training provision and prepares us well for the future. A future I am really looking forward to.
