HallNet is the Wi-Fi and wired network service available in halls of residence to connect smart devices and game consoles.

Hallnet Wi-Fi

This network is only available for wireless smart devices (Amazon Alexa, Google products etc.) which are not capable of connecting to eduroam and is only available in halls of residence. Instructions to connect your wireless smart devices can be found on the button below.

Connect to HallNet...


We do not support personal printers on our wireless network and you will not need one.

There are multiple printers available around campus, charged on a per page basis and can be accessed from your own MacOS/Windows computer.

Please visit Campus Printing  https://www.lboro.ac.uk/services/creative-print/print-post/campus-printing/.

If you do bring a printer, it is recommended to connect to your printer via a USB cable. This allows you to print directly from your computer/laptop without the requirement for an internet connection. Please refer to your device manual for instructions to enable a USB connection.
