Utilities

Cable Television

At present on Campus, the GMB, Botany Bay, Rubrics and Goldsmith Hall are wired for cable TV. In the case of Trinity Hall, all shared kitchen/livingroom areas are wired for cable TV. The service provider can only supply the basic channel package. Sports, Movies and other subscription channels are not available. Residents must provide their own TV and should note that TVs originating from outside the Republic of Ireland may have difficulties with tuning. Currently student residents do not require a TV licence as the Accommodation Office takes one out on their behalf; this may be subject to change. This does not apply to staff members, who are responsible for their own TV licence.

Heating - Campus

With the exception of the Rubrics and Houses 47 to 52, student residences are centrally heated. Central heating is controlled by time clocks with the heat timed to come on at specific times throughout the day. Locally, heat can be regulated by adjusting the valves on the radiators in your room. During the heating season, service is provided from 07.00hrs - 22.30hrs daily. In residential areas with no central heating, each area generally has an individual gas, electric or night storage heater. Rooms in the Rubrics have gas fires which can be operated at the user's discretion. Houses 47 to 52 have electric storage heating which charges at night and releases heat during the day. They also have a convector option which enables the individual user to boost their heating during the day if required. Instructions for the type of heater in your room can be obtained in the Accommodation Office.

Hot water is available in all rooms 24 hours a day.
