Internet & telephones
All GTC College accommodation has wifi access, allowing you to connect your computer directly to the internet, local resources including online libraries, and the College filestore.
New students should ensure that their IT equipment meets the criteria specified; for this, information about connecting to the internet and IT issues see the IT information pages.
All phone lines for accommodation on the main College site are connected via the Oxford University phone network. Phones should work immediately when plugged in, and give free calls to other University extensions. Numbers for these can be gained from the Porters, either directly, or by ringing the Porters on 74770, who can then tell you your number.
Phone calls will be charged to your battels account.
Observatory Street and Norham Gardens
All the houses on Observatory Street and the flats at 13 Norham Gardens are currently supplied by BT. However, the responsibility for setting up a phone service and arranging a supplier lies with the occupants, so you are not bound to BT and may change provider if you wish.
St Margaret’s Road
No landlines installed. We recommend you use Skype or a mobile phone for calls.
Rewley Abbey Court
RAC flats are connected via the University phone network, giving free calls to other University extensions. Your number can be obtained from the RAC Caretaker. Phone bills will be charged to your battels account.
Any students not living in College accommodation will need to make their own home internet and telephone arrangements.
