Wired - Ethernet

We would recommend all students use Eduroam as it is fast, used across the University, and allows you to access the network without the need for cables.

However, if your device does not support Eduroam or you would like to use the wired connection, then you may do so.

You should find a network connection in your room. Follow the instructions below to connect your device.

Please note:

WiFi extenders, routers and bridges are NOT permitted on our network. Anyone found to be using such a device will be disconnected from the network and may face a College fine.

By connecting you agree to abide by the University IT Rules and Regulations and by the terms and conditions in the Student Handbook.

Anti-Virus software must be installed and should be regularly updated. Your operating system must also be kept up to date.

All torrent software must be uninstalled before using our network. If you download any copyrighted material you will be subject to a University and College fine.
