College Network Connection Charges
How much does it cost?
We will automatically add the connection charge each term. You may Opt-Out of the charge if you don't want to use the College network.
* College-wide Lapwing roll-out was completed Easter 12, the termly charge increased to cover costs.
Note: Students staying on and using the network during the long vacation will be billed one term's charge.
What Does it Cover?
The charge goes towards the provision of new, maintenance of existing, and periodic replacement of College network facilities plus the resulting internet traffic charges from the University. All undergraduate student rooms contain one or more wired Ethernet connections which give access to the internet, e-mail, and the central resources of the University and Departments. Over the last two years we have been investing in the University's Lapwing wireless service to serve many of the College's communal areas.
The Network Connection Charge is not compulsory and only applies to rooms with a College-provided network service. If you do not want to use the College's network services, you must opt out by completing this form at the start of each academic year:
By opting out, you agree to not use the wired or wireless facilities (the communal PWF computer facilities remain free to all). If you are found to be in breach of the opt-out, you will be charged retrospectively. The Opt-Out form must be printed, signed and submitted to the Bursary within one week of the start of Full Term.
