Use your own laptop

You are expected to use your own laptop for computer practicals. Utrecht University has provided SolisWorkSpace for this purpose. A facility where much of the software that you will need as a student can be accessed anytime and everywhere. As soon as you have received your Solis-id and password, you can use these educational applications, including during computer practicals.

Other software

Some software for specific courses cannot be installed in SolisWorkSpace, due to technical reasons or because of licences. In that case you will need to install the software on your own laptop. You will be given further instructions on how to do this before the start of your course.

Computer rooms

If a course uses heavy educational applications, or applications with specific licensing requirements, the computer practical will be given in a computer room. In this case you do not need to bring your own laptop.
