StudentCom @ Hamstead delivers so much in terms of choice and quality of service...
WiFi Broadband and TV
WiFi Broadband at up to 100Mbs is included within the rent.
Our TV service delivers all the available Freeview channels, full screen, at TV broadcast quality, direct to your PC/Laptop/Mac. No need to bring a portable TV from home, which saves on insurance, desk space and carrying that one extra thing to and from campus. You will need to purchase a TV license if you watch TV from your PC/Laptop/Mac.
GameCom - is the student only gaming environment - tournaments are held regularly. Challenge students you know or even set up competitions against another hall - you can even see how you've faired against all the students on our network. You can earn GameCom points through the tournaments or the GameCom portal itself - and there are some amazing prices available. We are always looking for new ideas on how to continue to deliver the best student only gaming experience in the UK.
Back Up- is a service that allows you to keep safe all your course work. It offers you personal storage space for those selected files, which are then automatically backed up every time you connect to the Internet. This provides you with peace of mind - because things do tend to happen to laptops or USB Memory sticks don't they!
MusicCom - is a very popular service, which essentially allows you to listen to new music and increase your spending power. How does it work? In collaboration with our music industry partners, we are able to bring to you new music, and if you let us know what you think, we will reward you with Amazon vouchers to spend on line as you wish.
In addition to WiFi in bedrooms have access to the Internet via RJ45 data outlet.
For those students who register for our services, access to the Internet will also be available via WiFi wireless access points in areas around the campus.
Any problems? Our Service desk is available 7 days a week and contactable on a local call rated number.
