Internet Connectivity in Residence

Configuring a Wired Internet Connection in Residence

Internet and network accessibility are included as part of residence fees. All rooms have activated network ports through which any student may gain access to the internet. If students would like to connect a device via a wired connection, they are welcome to request a network cable free of charge from the front desk in Bartley Residence or Orillia Residence, which could then be used to connect a device that supports a wired connection via the port in their room. If connection difficulties arise, TSC helpdesk staff can be contacted for further troubleshooting assistance (please see the bottom of this page for the helpdesk's contact information).

Please note that all users of Lakehead's network are liable for their activities online and are expected to use this resource in a reasonable and responsible manner.
