The computer facilities for students and trainees are to be found in the Internet Room ('E' floor), shown in the image above.
The facilities include 12 PCs equipped with Microsoft Office, with a good Internet connection. There is also a laser printer (black and white only), and a scanner.
All of the above is included as part of your course (though we do charge for printing things, with the exception of course work on teacher training courses -- which is free).
The Internet Room in fact occupies two rooms, one of which you will occasionally find closed if there is a teacher using it with a group of students.
For the duration of your course, wireless access is available to you free of charge, pretty much everywhere in the school, provided you have a suitably equipped laptop or mobile device.
You have lots of cybercafes in Barcelona but there is also a free public wifi network (logo, right), with over 600 stations opened or planned for libraries, museums, parks and sports centres.
The Internet Room is staffed by Natxo (in the mornings) and Tom (in the afternoons). If you need any help with anything at any time, please do come and ask: providing help is what we are there for.
Apart from helping with technology, we can probably also help with things relating to Barcelona, apart from anything else as we maintain a Barcelona directory of sites of all kinds of interest to our students.
The Internet Room is open to all students at IH at the following times:
A slightly different timetable may operate in August and over the Christmas and Easter holiday periods.
You cannot use USB drives on any of the computers in the school.
They are blocked to prevent the spread of viruses.
