GuestUoW - wireless for non-educational visitors

Non-educational visitors can connect their own computer or other device to our guest wireless network, GuestUoW.  This network provides access to the internet only - not to University systems. It is available in all wireless access points across all campuses. 

Visitors from other educational institutions should connect to the eduroam service, using the username and password issued by their own institution to access the Internet here (remembering to include the institutional suffix).

As of 1 November, 2017, the University has a simpler way for visitors, guests or commercial tenants to get access to the Internet. The previous system required a member of University staff to create an account and pass on the detail to the visitor, whereas now a visitor can just connect to the network and register online.
