The whole of Glasney Student Village will become wi-fi enabled in February as a result of a collaboration between three of our shared services – Estates & Development, Accommodation and IT Services – and an extensive programme of work that has been in progress since November.
In response to student feedback, on-campus residents will be able to authenticate their devices and log onto ResNet from the comfort of their living spaces.
Upon completion, this project will have involved the installation of 32 kilometres of cable to connect our 1451 rooms on campus, and represents a major step forward in terms of enhancing the student experience.
We will be providing additional dedicated IT support for our student residents, accessible via our Service Desk, when the installation is complete.
We also hope that this new service will help to encourage more second- and third-year students to consider remaining in, or returning to, Glasney Student Village for the 2013/2014 academic year.
