  • If you are short-term visitor without eduroam settings for your home institution, your host institution in Cambridge could issue you with temporary access to the wireless network (which may also give you access to printing facilities).
  • As an official or accredited visitor, your host institution in Cambridge can apply for University Information Services accounts for you. These will include:
    • Raven credentials: Raven is our local authentication service, and credentials will allow you access to Cambridge-only facilities such as electronic journals.
    • Email account
