    Does Bradford university allow their students to use consoles or gaming pc's for online gaming?

    I intend to do some gaming in some sparetime I get but I can't seem to find out if the uni allows us to use them online.

    Is there anyone studying at Bradford who uses a console or gaming pc who can clarify this.

    Thanks in advance!

    With your own console/pc? If you just need to connect to the internet to game, there are three different types of wifi network available across the university, eduroam, Roamnet and The Cloud

    Eduroam and Roamnet are the academic networks (click the links above for terms of use), whereas The Cloud is a free public access network that's available right across the UK (you can sign up for it for free at any time) and you can get it in coffee shops, pubs etc right across Bradford.

    There's a Video Gaming Society at the Uni, their web page here or you can follow them on Twitter here

    Thank you for you assistance, am I correct when I say eduroam and roamnet are strictly for academic use only, and The Cloud I am free to use for gaming.

    Regulation 21 suggests that the uni networks shouldn't be used for gaming, torrents etc, etc. Might be an idea to drop the gaming society an email or tweet about it to see if they can advise?
