If you are living in one of the university residences, you may have internet access from your room. To find out where this service is available, contact the Residences and Catering department.
To connect to our network, follow the steps below:
- Obtain a university username and password for logging into our network.
If you haven't got your username and password yet, visit the activate web page to activate your account instantly.
- Check that your computer has got antivirus software installed.
If you don't have any, speak to the staff in your residence. They can give you a copy of a market-leading product free of charge. They can also give you a free network cable, ready to plug your computer into the socket in your room.
- Configure your operating system and your web browser to work with our network (e.g. Windows with Internet Explorer or Mac OSX with Safari).
It only takes a couple of minutes and there are step-by-step guides available on www.brighton.ac.uk/is/docs (with the search term connect), or the free CD-ROM available from the Connection Clinics. It's not difficult, but you will need to follow the brief instructions carefully.
- If you have any problems, or you're not sure whether your antivirus software is working properly, visit one of our Computer First Aid Clinics , where one of our techies will do their best to help you.
