Using the wired network in your hall of residence.

In addition to the wireless network, we also provide a single wired connection in each room usually installed near to your desk. If you want to use the wired network, you’ll need to pick up a network cable from your residence’s site office.

 If you have not changed the default setting on your computer, you should be able to connect straight away but please read the security section before connecting.

Try this first

The first time you connect, the network will try to redirect you to the registration page, if the first time you try and connect you don’t get the registration page, try entering the following web address:


When you get the registration page:

  • Enter your University username only (NOT your full email address)
  • Enter your password
  • You also need to tick the box accepting the T&Cs if you want to connect 

Forgotten your password

If you have forgotten your initial password, you can find it using the 'click here to obtain your IT username and password' link on the registration page.

If you’ve changed your initial password, you will need to give the IT Service Desk a ring on 0113 343 3333 to reset it.
