Each room within College has an Ethernet port which allows connection of a device to the College network via an Ethernet cable. The device needs an Ethernet (RJ45) socket which may require the use of a USB adapter, cables are available from the Lodge.

Once a device is connected to the wired network you will first need to agree to the Acceptable Use Policy. You will then be passed to a registration page which will give you instructions on how to register your device.

Students with Mac or Windows devices will need to have an up to date antivirus program installed. If this is not the case the Registration system will guide you through the process of becoming compliant.
