Accommodation Internet Access
There are several ways that you can use to connect to the internet in your University managed accommodation.
For most users, eduroam is our recommended service – you can connect quickly and easily in just a few simple steps. However, if you are using a games console or a smart TV, you should connect wirelessly via our ResNET service.
Connect via eduroam
This service is recommended for laptops, tablets, computers and mobile phones. To be able to connect you will need your computing account username and password.
