    Hey yer the rooms do have internet but its very slow so wathcing things on iplayer or youtube takes a long time. I am the same as you as i live next to Warsash but ended up here not too bad though

          Is it wireless or do you need an ethernet cable? And how restricted is it?

            I guess it's not worth bringing my xbox. I read that Warsash has some sort of SUPER broadband

              I wouldn't call it super - it can handle iPlayer, YouTube etc but it's certainly not as fast as you might get at home.

                It is very hard to get any consoles to work online in halls unless you attempt to run them through a proxy server..

                  Thanks, i'll probably leave it at home then, i don't trust/understand proxy servers.

                      Hmm take it to keep you entertained , although in the first week you wont have much time as you will be drinking !! At STC we plug ours into the network and have big lan games with loads of people in my group , the internet at STC is very variable i live on the top floor were the routers are located so get an OK speed. can watch iplayer sometimes , at peak times you have no chance.
                      Maybe I will never be
                      All the things that I want to be
                      But now is not the time to cry
                      Now's the time to find out why
