Desk space and computing space

    Hey I have a rather large array computer related items that I would like to be able to use simultaneously. I was wondering If the generic desk space in halls is enough to fit a 23" Dell monitor, a 19" Square 4:3 monitor, a small acer laptop 11.6", a PC in the Silverstone SST-GD09 (ATX HTPC/Desktop for those of you who know the standards), a mouse and full sized keyboard and a full size high backed computer chair?

    I just wanted to know so I could prioritize as I'm going to attend RGU in September to study Computer Science Bsc. Naturally knowing what personal resources I would have access to would help me greatly.

    Cant you just contact the Hall you are going to and virtually anyone can confirm the size of a standard desk. Get the dimensions of your room as well.
    Cant you just email the people who run the computing facilities or just go to their webpage to see available resources?

    You will likely be able to get all the equipment bar the 19" monitor without it being too cramped.
