We consider how changing attitudes to computer use may alter the habits of students in the use of location and times of the day. We discover for one community the extent to which they absent themselves from the physical university and see some trends.We suggest that this is a deep change of habit, influenced by the 'digital generation', and seek qualitative results on what determines the modern student's keyboard behaviour. We present early evidence that, while students are indeed absenting themselves from formal computer facilities, some understanding of the benefits of the physical university remains intact.
