Returning to the University (Windows Security Alert)

At the start of July 2014 the University wireless network was updated. If you are connecting to the network for the first time, on the same device, after this date, you may get a Windows Security Alert which gives two prompts, 'Terminate' or 'Connect.' Just click on 'Connect' when prompted and your device will recognise the new network certificate. If problems persist please contact the IS Service Desk on 7777.

Set up your device

Some of the following instructions contain an automatic setup, which can be used if you have an internet connection already on your device, for example 3G or if you are at home. After the automatic setup instructions there are guides for connecting to eduroam manually.
