Information + Technology Services at Trinity
Residence Network (ResNet)
All student rooms are wired for students that wish to connect to the residence network with their own computers. Activation procedures, regulations and computer requirements are provided in hardcopy to student mailboxes in early September. For more information, please read the ResNet Essentials, Resnet Information kit, and ResNet Assistance Request Form documents. If you have already read all the information but still have questions,please follow the instructions on the ResNet Assistance Request Form for how to report your problem.
UTOR Campus Wireless Network (UTORcwn) access points provide wi-fi access in all common areas of the College as well as to all residence rooms, the Larkin building and the Graham Library.
UTORcwn provides three SSID's in your device's list of available wi-fi networks at Trinity: "UTORwin", "UofT" and "eduroam". The "UTORwin" and "UofT" networks require a UTORid for access. UTORid's are provided in advance during enrolment application procedures, however new UTORid's are only activated when you receive your T-Card and activation key at the T-Card office at Robart's Library (room 2054A).
UTORwin is the older wireless SSID. It continues to be made available in order to support older wireless devices that do not support RADIUS authentication. It also requires that you use a browser each time you connect and it is limited to the wireless B and G standards which have slower connection speeds. We strongly recommend that users switch to using the new "UofT" network for a much more satisfactory experience. "eduroam" is intended only for UT students who are planning to attend other universities or for temporary visiting students from other universities.
UofT SSID: Before you can access the UofT wi-fi network, you will need to register your UTORid by using the VERIFY TOOL (at https://www.utorid.utoronto.ca/cgi-bin/utorid/verify.pl), even if your UTORid is working for other services. There will be a short delay between verifying and being able to access UofT. See http://help.ic.utoronto.ca/content/20/704/en/wireless-access.html for a step-by-step guide to connect your computer.
Please note that wireless devices are registered with the UTORid and password used, so it is not recommended that you share your wireless computers or devices (you are liable for activity on the device registered with your UTORid).
ALL support for the UTORcwn wireless networks is provided by Robart's Library Info Commons Helpdesk and Helpline (416-978-HELP). Trinity College IT staff are not tasked with providing support for the wireless networks (so please contact Robarts instead!)
Computer Room at St. Hildas
The St. Hilda's College Computer Room (#134, next to the Portress' office) provides students with 4 workstations for web access, email, word-processing, printing, and accessing the University of Toronto network, including the University of Toronto's online catalogue and information system. You log onto the lab workstations using a generic account posted in the lab.
Trinity Email Accounts
Trinity email accounts, of the form firstname.lastname@example.org, are not issued to Trinity students. University of Toronto students, including Trinity College students, are required to obtain and monitor UTmail+ accounts. Obtain your UTORmail account at www.utorid.utoronto.ca. U of T Policies on the use of information and communication technology apply.
