Halls of Residence & Wireless Network Connections
Most Halls of Residence rooms are equipped with network connection points which allow you to connect your computer or laptop to the college network and the internet. Wi-fi access points distributed around the College sites and Halls of Residence also enable you to connect to the network if you have a laptop with a wireless network card.
Connecting to the college network in either way will allow you to access your email, Student Service filestore, College web sites such as the Library or departmental pages, WebCT Virtual Learning Environment and the Courses web server.
Please note that full and unrestricted internet access is not guaranteed on the Halls or Wireless networks.
You will be able to access resources off-campus, but for reasons of legality, security, feasibility or to give priorty to essential network traffic, the Halls and Wireless services are managed and controlled so you may not be able to do certain activities such as file-sharing, gaming or accessing some remote VPNs that you would on a full internet service from a commercial provider.
