Questions and answers

I have a wireless printer, can I connect it using wi-fi to my computer in my campus bedroom?

No, you will need to use a cable or Bluetooth connection between your printer and computer, 

There is wi-fi in the campus bedrooms but it's not possible to connect one device to another using the campus wi-fi network. (This is often the case in larger networks at Universities and colleges in order to give users more protection.)

There are many printers on the campus though - including in York House and Northfield Social Area in the residences, where you can print documents straight from a laptop.

There's more information on our website:
