Computers and WiFi

The below information relates to the cancelled event IMC 2020. Arrangements for future IMCs will be available here in due course.

Your individual username and password can be found on the back of your name badge. These will allow you access to the computer, photocopying and printing facilities in the computer clusters, as well as on-campus wifi.


All IMC delegates have free access to the MeetInLeeds network, available on campus and in halls of residence. To connect to this network:

  • Browse available wireless networks and select MeetInLeeds
  • The MeetInLeeds login page will will load when you open a web browser
  • Enter the WiFi username and password on your name badge
  • If the login page does not appear, trying clearing your cache, then closing and re-opening your browser.

You may need to reconnect if you move around campus, or if your device is inactive for a period of time.

If you use eduroam at your home institution, you can connect to the eduroam network at Leeds, both on campus and in halls of residence. Use the same username and password as you would at your home institution. Please note that your access to Eduroam is supported by your home institution, not by the University of Leeds.

Computer clusters

The Woolhouse Cluster in the basement of the Parkinson Building and the 24-hour Textiles Cluster in the School of Design are both open to IMC delegates. IT support for laptops, tablets and smartphones is available at the Woolhouse Cluster during the day and in the Textiles Cluster in the evenings.

University computers run Windows with Microsoft Office 2013 and Internet Explorer 10. You will only be able to access email through web-based applications. No facilities or support are available for Macs.

Remember that by completing your registration, you agree to the University’s Conditions of Use of Computer Systems for Visitors.

Printing and photocopying

You will be allocated some printing and photocopying credit with your login details, but you will need to buy credit if you exceed this allowance. We recommend printing as much of your material as possible before you arrive and bringing it to the IMC with you.
