If you don't have a premium room you pay for it when you are there.

You need to apply before you go. Check the pack that came with your licence agreements.

You're all so pro-exercise you put me to shame- I get out of breath just walking to the top of my road! Do you reckon we get a tutorial on how to use the gym equipment, or will be just be expected to know?

On the subject of internet, I just need a bit of advice from someone who understands IT more than I do. I have a laptop and will be taking it to storthes with me but I am thinking I need to get a modem for my laptop before I go because currently I just use wireless technology to get on the net. Can anyone advise me on what I will need to do to access the net at Storthes? I'm not IT illiterate, but my knowledge is very very basic.

Does anyone know if all the people with a premium room are put together or if it's a mix of people with a premium room and people without.

Ok. I wasn't told anything about that because my train decided to leave Glasgow later than planned so I missed the connection at Leeds to go to Huddersfield.

Hay im jesi an dim studying ICT Bsc in sptember and staying in storthes hall

but about the internet you will need to check if your laptop has an internal modem! if it is under 3 yrs old the best bet that is has if so you will either need a router and a usb stick with wireless for your laptop. or just an ethernet cable (looks like a squashed usb cable) which i think plugs straight into the wall.

Gd god i sound just like a geck !! does any one know if there is any other girls doing the ICT course??
Love jesibean x

you dont need a modem. a modem is what is used to recieve data from the outside world (your ISP) and converts it over to your computer.

Storthes is networked using an infrastructure called a LAN (Local Area Network) and in each room has an ethernet port connected to a server room which then is connected to Storthes student ISP creating a WAN (Wide Area Network)

You DEFINATLY do not need a router. That is if you wish to connect more then 1 computer together. As I stated before, each laptop now days comes with an ethernet port, if it does not, you will need to purchase a network card.

from what the other lot was saying about the internet speed and reliability i dont think it will.

however, on the network between rooms, you should be able to link up with everyone and it should be fine. I can't see why it would be slow unless their hardware (hub/switch/router) is crap.
