IT and media resources are a common thread behind many of the activities which help to enhance your learning experience, such as your online student account (giving you access to email, printing and payments and more), Blackboard (your online learning environment), open access to computers on each campus, printing services, and media equipment.

At the University of South Wales, we have a strong commitment to providing technology-based learning environments to support you as a student. Whether you are studying on campus, at home or elsewhere, you have web access to your course materials anytime and anywhere.
