The Department of Zoology has 2 research autoclaves, Steris Amsco Lab 250 models, located in the South Wing, room 3302, of the Biological Sciences Building. Anyone who wishes to use the autoclaves will be required to undergo in-department autoclave safety training prior to using.

The Zoology Computing Unit builds and maintains the computing infrastructure needed for the research, teaching and administration functions of the department. Services we offer include: email, printing (including posters), file serving, cloud storage, personal computer backups, flexible web hosting, shared equipment/software, consulting/advice, a computer cluster for large RAM-requiring jobs (usually genomics) and a server farm for simulations. "Gradlab" is our shared-equipment room, "Statslab" is a 20-seat PC lab for teaching, and a cart with 20 laptops which can be deployed in any classroom. The ZCU has a properly climate- and power-conditioned room both for shared departmental servers, and for computing equipment belonging to individual labs. We also have a computing tools loaner pool.
The ZCU offers the benefits of an embedded IT service. A few of these benefits are: the staff and the people they serve know each other, the staff and facilities are local and thus easy to contact/use, and our relatively smaller user base allows us to more easily specialize, adapt and innovate. The manager is a biologist, to facilitate communication to/from the computing world.
