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.

Telephone (ResTel)

You will find a telephone handset in your room. This provides you with your own private dedicated telephone line with optional voicemail. The line will already be activated for internal calls. This telephone service is included in your room rental.


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.
