Cardiff University network connection points are currently not provided in these houses. Some of the houses have the benefit of having telecommunication lines installed by previous occupants. If this is not the case, you may be able to arrange to have your own line installed. To do this you must initially obtain permission from your Residences Manager. Please note that responsibility for all installation, call and associated charges lie with the house occupants.

Please note, that there is a currently a project underway to install Cardiff University network connection points in student houses. Phase 1 of this project is to install these connection points and wireless access in Colum Road houses during the summer period with the aim of these facilities being provided from mid-September 2014.
