Student Laptop Clinics on Fridays

The Student Laptop Clinics before Easter were very popular and we are running them again this term. Due to a lack of space clinics this term are on Friday afternoons only; however we will have lots of staff available to help. We can’t fix all problems but will help as much as we can. Clinics are free of charge.

Clinics will be held in room TRF on the first floor of the Computer Centre from 2pm to 5pm starting Friday 25th April.

Unfortunately at time of writing there is currently no ResNet service in two areas. This is affecting up to 40 ResNet subscribers in total.

  • 121 Redland Road: there has been no ResNet service to the 16 rooms in this student house since 13:20 Sunday 20/04/08
  • Deans Court: there has been no ResNet service to most of the rooms in flats Flats 32-49 Deans Court since saturday 04:20. ResNet in the rest of Deans Court is working fine.

We don’t know the cause of the two faults yet and are unable to fix them at the weekend. We will investigate it fully and try to fix them as soon as possible on Monday.

We’re very sorry for the interruption and the inconvenience caused to people in those areas.


These two outages were fixed by 11am 21/04/08.
