Internet (ResNet)

The residence network (ResNet) provides you with a direct connection to the University network and so to the Internet. This is a cabled ethernet network (10/100 Mbps). "Direct" means, among other things, that you plug your computer directly into a network socket rather than going through a telephone line.

For more information, please see the ResNet website.


You need to be covered by a TV Licence to watch or record live TV programmes on any channel, or download or watch BBC programmes on iPlayer.

This could be on any device, including a TV, desktop computer, laptop, mobile phone, tablet, games console, digital box or DVD/VHS recorder. If you do any of the above without a valid licence, you risk prosecution and a maximum penalty of up to £1,000, plus any legal costs and/or compensation you may be ordered to pay. You will also still have to buy a TV Licence if you need one.
