Wireless connections

Three wireless networks are accessible at the CMS: eduroam, UniOfCam-IoT and UniOfCam-Guest. They can be set up by following these UIS instructions.

  • eduroam is a secure roaming access service which makes it easy for members of one university with eduroam to connect to the Internet wirelessly from any other university with eduroam. Because it is more secure than the other networks, it offers a fuller range of network services, and it is the recommended choice of wireless network.

    eduroam needs to be configured before first use, but thereafter will "Just Work". Cambridge users should refer to the UIS's configuration instructions. Visitors should configure their computers for eduroam access before leaving their home university, consulting with their local computer support if necessary. If your home university does not support eduroam yet, you will have to use UniOfCam-Guest instead.

  • UniOfCam-IoT is for connecting personal devices that cannot use eduroam

  • UniOfCam-Guest is recommended for visitors who cannot use eduroam.

Connect to the most appropriate wireless network.
