WIRELESS INTERNET ACCESS

The College offers Eduroam wireless in all its buildings. Eduroam is available throughout Oxford as well as some 6,000 “hotspots” on the planet – mainly academic and research institutions.

Eduroam uses your REMOTE ACCESS account for authentication.


EDUROAM

Eduroam is an international federation of academic institutions which allows its users to visit other participating institutions and use the same username and password as they would use at their home institution. Our wireless access points are configured to broadcast the settings of this service.

We strongly recommend Eduroam to all our Staff, Fellows and Students – once configured you can connect to free wireless all over Oxford as well as other Eduroam hotspots around the UK and the rest of the world.
