The initial advice I had regarding this conflicts a little with that 
which i've received in the last couple of days.

We will communicate in greater detail in the next day or so, however my 
understanding /at this point/ is that our Conference Wifi will be 
available at any of the City Campus locations as shown on the map on 
this page:


The University Halls appear on the above map as 'Elam Halls' and are not 
shown to have Wifi.
So at the Uni Halls you will be able to use Wired networking. The advise 
we have received as of late yesterday is:

"The residential wired network access doesn’t require any credential 
during university holiday period. User can just connect the ethernet 
port in the room and go. This network access is available to all the 
accommodations provided by our university."

It's been many months since I last personally visited the Uni Halls so I 
don't know exactly where the ethernet ports concerned are - I /think/ 
there's a port in each room.

There will be some official comms to registered delegates and speakers 
about the Internet connectivity options generated in the next 24 hours 
or so.
