A number of rooms in the Geoffrey Manton building and Mabel Tylecote 321 have now been installed with AV facilities. All the seminar rooms with moveable seating in GM have now been equipped with a projector and a connection point for a laptop. The University network is available via the wi-fi in the building.
The control panel can be found at the side of the whiteboard in each room. Internet access and Powerpoint facilities can be accessed by a laptop using the lead provided. Unlike the lecture theatres in the building, these rooms have not had the technical desks installed and so a laptop is required.
