Find a computer

Need to use a PC or Mac for study or research?

PC Finder is now available to help you locate a vacant computer.

  • visit PC Finder online
  • if you have the Monash iPhone app, check PC Finder under Library.

Getting started

To use a Library computer, you need a current Monash account. You will need to use your Monash username and password to login.

Because the number of computer workstations is limited you are requested to restrict your use of computers to study-related activities. When you use a library computer you must also comply with the University's Information Technology Acceptable Use Policy.

Types of computers

For study and research

Computer workstations (Mac and PC) are provided for student use within the Library and provide access to:

  • Library online resources
  • internet
  • printing
  • Microsoft Office and other standard software

Catalogue searching and quick printing

Express PCs are also provided in each library so that you can quickly use Search to locate a book or print out a document when a regular PC is not available.

Non-Monash visitors

Community members and visitors can use express PCs to locate resources at all libraries, and may be able to access some Library databases from a designated 'visitor' workstation at all libraries. Enquire at the information point for assistance.

In general, access to word processing and the internet at the University is restricted to students and staff.  Visit your local public library to use these programs.
