IT and Computing

College rooms all come with wired internet connections as well as WiFi being pervasive through the college. Please note that due to curious politics at the college you will ned to register your devices online before being able to access the internet, eduroam or otherwise. This registration process occurs at 00:00 on the first day of each term, causing a short service disruption and a reset of internet balance to 0GB. The MCR is currently working with the JCR to address this so be aware that it will happen and that we are negotiating a resolution.

For IT issues, concerns, complaints contact either mcr.itpub@magd.cam.ac.uk or it@magd.cam.ac.uk.

In an emergency (internet is dead) please email sos@magd.cam.ac.uk.
