All campuses have access to an internet connection. The internet connection differs per campus. UCR is in charge of the wired internet access. During UCR’s introduction week, all UCR students will receive a package from UCR that includes a code for the internet.
All non-UCR students will receive the code for internet during check-in from Gapph. See below the different kinds of internet connections per campus.
Bachtensteene = wired internet access
Hof van Sint Pieter = wifi
Zuidsingel = wired internet access
Roggeveenhof = wired internet access
Koestraat = wired internet access
Nieuwe Haven = arrange your own internet with fellow residents
Bagijnhof = wired internet access
To use the wired internet access you need to have a router.
You can buy a router for example in Mediamarkt or BCC.
How does it works?
- Connect your router directly to the wall outlet with a network cable in the WAN port of the router (internet port). Maybe you need to re-configure your router before being able to set up wifi, you can follow the instructions on the manual of your router.
- Connect your laptop wirelessly to the router and register your laptop.
If you connect your laptop wireless to the router you should get a pop-up asking you to register; https://qnet.ucr.nl/register with the login details you received from UCR or the login details below. If this pop-up is not showing automatically, try to open your browser and visit for example google, than the register site will show up automatically.
