<pre wrap="">We are putting together some more structured comms - but the latest news
is that the Conference Wifi is now active and available across the entire
campus, not just the Business School.
The accommodation has free wired internet available.
I'm be staying at Uni Halls, where the previous advice was that the wired
network in the rooms would not be available to conference delegates. Does
the above advice supercede this? The original information on the
accomodation page said tha Uni Hall would have wifi only in the common
areas; again, does the above indicate that this is no longer the case?
To avoid confusion and to ensure I pack and plan appropriately, what is the
intended network situation at Uni Halls for delegates?
The initial advice I had regarding this conflicts a little with that
which i've received in the last couple of days.<br>
We will communicate in greater detail in the next day or so, however
my understanding <i>at this point</i> is that our Conference Wifi
will be available at any of the City Campus locations as shown on
the map on this page:<br>

The University Halls appear on the above map as 'Elam Halls' and are
not shown to have Wifi.<br>
So at the Uni Halls you will be able to use Wired networking. The
advise we have received as of late yesterday is:<br>
"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."<br>
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 <i>think</i>
there's a port in each room.<br>
There will be some official comms to registered delegates and
speakers about the Internet connectivity options generated in the
next 24 hours or so.<br>
