These pages are designed to give you information about the Residence Computer Network supplied throughout the Residences, as well as instructions on how to get your personal computer connected.
The University's wireless network now extends to most study bedrooms in undergraduate halls of residences as well as our principal postgraduate accommodation. Users should follow the instructions for connection to Eduroam, users who are on campus can get started by connecting to the open wireless network uos-connect and then opening their web browser to be re-directed to the setup landing pages. (please note: you will require your St Andrews username and password in order to get connected to this service.)
Users wishing to use our cabled services will also find a RJ45 socket in their study bedrooms, adjacent to their telephone socket and a small stock of cables will be made available at your residence for users wishing to connect via cable to our network services.

IT Services has relaxed its position on online gaming over the residential network and we have implemented firewall changes that allow some popular games to be played over the residential network.
We can only enable this for games that wouldn’t compromise the stability, security or capacity of the network for academic, educational and research purposes.
IT Services staff are not experts in gaming - and we do not have access to console hardware, games or gaming services to test any problems that are reported to us by users of the service. This means the support we can provide is very limited, however we will respond to fault reports and suggestions about the service the best we can.
Please note: IT Services reserves the right to remove any gaming device from the network if it is determined to be causing problems for other users, either locally or campus-wide.
