Getting started with Library and IT services

What to do in your first weeks on campus

Three tips for Library and IT success!

If you’re a new student at Kent, you’ll be using the Library, IT systems and study spaces to help you with your studies. Here’s how to get started and make the most of your first weeks on campus!

Get online

You can connect to Wi-Fi before you arrive on campus. If you’re living on campus, see the instructions in your Getting Started booklet in your accommodation.

Use the wired internet with a network cable for the fastest gaming and streaming in your room. If you don’t have one, get one free from the IT & Library Support Desk in the Templeman Library. There’s plenty of support to help you connect your phone, tablet or laptop – just ask IT & Library Support Desk. You’ll need to be online to access your Kent email – very important as this is one of the main ways the University will communicate with you!
