WiFi (eduroam)

Wifi is just about everywhere around campus and in student bedrooms, and it's really easy to connect.

Plus because we use the eduroam wifi network, when you visit friends at other Universities you will automatically connect to wifi there too.

Virtual Private Network (VPN)

You can access most online service from home and off campus easily and instantly via MUSE.

Occasionally you may need an extra secure VPN connection, which requires its own VPN password.
