Wireless Network

The Wireless service eduroam is available to students & staff with their own laptops/mobiles throughout the School. In using the wireless network you agree to abide by our Acceptable Use Policy.

The wireless network will give you access to the Internet and Internet based network services (e.g.Webmail, Moodle, web based library databases and catalogues). You will also be able to access your datastore and other resources via Horizon Remote Desktop.

The School uses 802.1x (WPA2/AES) with the SSID eduroam, which is a standards based authentication method providing secure access to the wireless network. This is also the JANET(UK) recommended authentication solution for the JANET Roaming Service (eduroam)  which provides network access for staff and students visiting other organisations such as Birkbeck, SOAS & UCL.
