In the Treehouse at Elms Village there is a Lounge which has study space with internet ready PCs and printing/photocopying facilities.  The wired and wireless service in the Treehouse and Lounge is connected to the Queen's University student network and provides a popular facility to study or browse outside of your room.  Equipment to use Skype can be borrowed from the Treehouse reception.  The printing and photocopying service operates in the same manner as in the McClay Library and therefore you will need credit on your Student Smart Card to pay the printing charge.
