Gaming

RezNet supports the use of various online games and game consoles (PS4, XboxOne, Wii U etc.) on our network. We wish to maintain a high level of satisfaction with online gaming whenever possible. If you are experiencing game latency or are unhappy with your general gaming experience please notify reznet.gaming@uwo.ca and we will attempt to rectify the issue. However, remember that academics is our number one priority and we cannot give precedence to gaming.
