Computer Labs

Does anyone know which computer labs are open over the summer?

I'm dissertation writing and after the library closes both Butts Wynd and the Irvine Computer Lab seem to be closed.

Anyone know why? I seem to remember them being open last summer.

The library is fine during the day, but as deadlines approach, a place to work in the evenings and weekends is proving hard to find!

The Bute should be open (matric card entry), as should Mathematics. Unsure about others.

I've managed to get into the Irvine computer room out of hours recently - could it be a problem with your matric card? A friend of mine had their card stopped by mistake and so couldn't use it for 24 hour access doors - may be worth looking into.

I can't get into Bute with my Matric card anymore. Haven't tried Maths though. There's one in Physics too, just by the main doors.
