Personal Wireless Access Points

For students with poor wireless coverage in their rooms, we can provide personal access points to set up a personal wireless network in their room.

These access points are available for free; visit the IT office to get one.

College Guest Wireless Internet Access

There is a college guest wireless network ("BNCGuest") and a University Visitor network ("OWL"). Logins are available from the lodge if you have a visitor requiring Internet access for only a few days.

Conference guests who are staying more than a few days will be provided with full network access credentials in arrival packs. Conference logins start usually with the 3 initials of your conference name. These credentials work with the secure wireless network "BNCWifi".
