Increased internet bandwidth

We’ve made significant enhancements to the technical infrastructure at ICMP, ensuring a better online experience once you arrive on campus. Our improvements include an increase in the capacity and bandwidth of our internet service provision – ten times what we had previously – as well as increased capability across our local networks. These upgrades will make sure you receive excellent connectivity in all corners of the ICMP building.

Faster and stronger Wi-Fi

We've also reviewed our Wi-Fi network capability to capitalise on this increased bandwidth, so you’ll have a quicker, stronger, and more stable Wi-Fi connection across campus. We’ve made digital upgrades to many of our learning spaces, such as performance rooms, tech labs, lecture rooms, communal spaces and the library, to enable you to engage in effective distance learning on campus… as well as when studying at home online.

Access to pioneering new learning platforms

We’re giving you access to extra technology and innovative new resources to enhance your learning experience. Packages and platform improvements that you can take advantage of include:
