The University's Residential Network Service.

From the end of January, 2021, internet access in Halls of Residence will be migrated from the third-party Optify service to a combination of eduroam WiFi and ResNet, the University's own service providing WiFi and wired access for devices that cannot connect to eduroam.


As a student in residential accommodation you will need to:

  • Note which day your building is being migrated as the internet access will be unavailable for periods of that day.
  • Register any devices you currently use on Optify for ResNet.
  • Once it is available, log into the ResNet WiFi network on any wireless devices you have registered using the auto-generated password.
