Logged into machines should not be left unattended for long periods of time.

Only one machine can be used by any individual at any given time. It is not permitted to reserve machines, either physically or by any other means eg running a password protected screen saver.

Cold food and drinks with lids are allowed (but hot food and open cups are not ok).

Noise should be kept to a minimum.
