Internet in your campus bedroom

Gaming in your Canterbury bedroom

You can play multiplayer games with others in campus bedrooms, and use online services like Xbox Live.

Most major games consoles will work online if you plug in an Ethernet cable and follow the steps below. Nintendo consoles will need a LAN adapter as they don't have one built in and will not connect eduroam WiFi.

To connect

From your campus bedroom you need to register your games console with us.

In some rooms there are two Ethernet sockets on the wall. Contact us if your second socket doesn't work, as it might need to be switched on.

Service restrictions:

  • We can't offer support for using your console on the network; we will register your console on a best-efforts basis.
  • Some services are restricted for security reasons.
