Tour our state-of the-art labs
@("h" + headingLevel)>
Hull students have access to state-of-the art labs and hi-tech equipment - including high-performance workstations, gigabit networking and immersive virtual networks.
Living the dream
The Hull Immersive Visualisation Environment (HIVE) offers a virtual reality cube, VR theatre, gigapixel wall facilities and wearable devices. We also have three motion capture environments for drones and VR, AR and MR applications.
Top spec learning
Our Turing Lab is outfitted with top-specification, state of the art desktop PCs, each with a Nvidia RTX 3070 graphics card and a 32” 4k monitor. This lab is used for teaching and student project development work, especially for subjects involving high-end graphics and artificial intelligence work.
Our Computer Science Superlab has been fully refurbished as part of a significant investment in high-performance work stations, servers and social spaces to create a more open and relaxed atmosphere. The Superlab has around 150 seats and is used for tutorials, workshops, extra-curricular activities such as the Three Thing Game 24 hour programming competition, and is open to students outside of teaching hours.
My time at Hull prepared me for success. It’s really important to inspire a future generation of students because it’s the students studying computer science here and all over the world that will be making the apps and games of tomorrow".
BSc Computer Science for Games Development
Our specialist robotics lab is used for robot development and programming activities.
Here you’ll get hands-on with DJI Drones, Turtlebot3 mobile robots and humanoids like Baxter, Nao and Pepper.
It's also used by the Robotics Society for their extra-curricular projects.
Fab by name, fab by nature
The FabLab is a communal space where ideas and concepts are realised by embracing digital manufacturing and engineering technologies. The ethos of the FabLab is to support your learning and give you the opportunity to turn your ideas into reality - digital into physical, and prototypes into products.
Inside, you'll find a comprehensive suite of technologies, ranging from our large pool of entry level FDM 3D printers, to more advanced Industry specification FDM machines, multiple high-resolution SLA machines and our showcase multi-material Polyjet 3D printer.
Take a look around the FabLab on our Virtual Tour.
All fun and games
You’ll find console dev kits for PS4, Xbox, Nintendo Switch and more in the Wilkes Laboratory.
Mac or PC, you’re all welcome here
We support Windows, macOS, iOS, Android, Linux and cloud-based systems with a mix of hardware, virtual machines and emulators.
