Can I play online games in Halls?

The AU and UK JANET networks are designed for academic use and do not attempt to offer the full set of non-academic services that a commercial ISP offers. Information Services does not have the resources to support widespread non-academic use.

An amount of such use is allowed where it DOES NOT:

  • impinge on the bandwidth available to academic users
  • in any way compromise the security of the University network
  • breach copyright or UK law e.g. peer-to-peer file sharing of movies, music etc.
  • encroach on Information Services staff time

All users of the AU Network are bound by Information Services regulations at all times
