Wired internet connection (Ethernet)

To connect to the internet using a wired connection, you can use the yellow network cables that are available in the Central Library. To connect to the internet via a wired connection in other locations you will need to provide your own cable. When you connect you will have immediate access to all UC hosted websites such as Learn and Library and network services such as printing in computer workrooms.

To access external internet services such as student email, Google etc, you will need to authenticate with the UC firewall.
