University Information Services
 

More than 150 departments, faculties, schools and other institutions have University Wireless. Some Colleges prefer to run their own wireless services, but you should still be able to connect to eduroam there. In these locations, however, you won't be able to access enhanced services from University Wireless, such as our guest services, UniOfCam-IoT or the AirGroup service that allows devices to talk to each other across the wireless network.
