Students fortunate enough to be residents in the University of Manchester’s halls will already be familiar with the Halls of Residence Network (Hornet).  Established in 1998 the University of Manchester provides internet connectivity to many of the student bedrooms in the halls through its Hornet services.  More information on Hornet can be found here http://www.manchester.ac.uk/halls/internet

Earlier in 2008, Hornet contacted Microsoft to ask if we could help sponsor awareness of the Hornet IT support facility so that students could easily locate where help can be found. I’m really pleased with the result, so pleased in fact that I’ve posted the photographs of the Hornets proudly wearing their hoodies.

Apparently, the university’s students have been asking Hornet reps where they can buy the hoodies from.

So now, not only do Hornet’s residents great super IT facilities and support but they are also left in no doubt about where to go for a great deal on Microsoft software, yep you guessed it http://www.TheUltimateSteal.co.uk

Like all universities, Manchester is working hard to deliver value to its students and Microsoft is pleased to be associated with the university and Hornet in helping students get the best out of technology to support their learning.
