COMPUTER FACILITIES

The Zanzibar University (ZU) is committed to provide information technology facilities for both teaching and administration. There are two computer laboratories that are used for training purposes. The laboratory has been designed for teaching and doing practical for BBIT students only. The other laboratory is for general use of teaching and doing practical for the rest of ZU students. Lecturers and senior administrators have their own PCs in their offices while the University qualified technicians take care of the IT services.

To facilitate the use of ICT, the University has installed a local area network with at least four sites on the campus and have their computers already networked. ZU also provides internet services.

The United Nation Development Project (UNDP) has erected on the campus a tall tower equipped with antennas for communicating with other three academic institutions in the country, namely, the State University of Zanzibar (SUZA), Zanzibar Institute for Financial administration and the College of Education of Zanzibar. All the institutions have similar ICT facilities including video conferencing facilities.
