Trinity network connections for Fellows, Other Senior Members and Students

Wired Trinity Connections (College accommodation/office occupants)

All Fellow’s and student’s rooms in College have access to a wireless point or computer network point (an ethernet socket) that can be used to connect to the internet via an ethernet cable. A wired connection will be more reliable and provide a better connection speed than a wireless connection. Some devices may require an Ethernet adapter in order to make use of the wired network.
