GuestUoW - Wi-Fi for visitors
Visitors can connect their own devices to our guest wireless network, GuestUoW. This network provides access to the internet only - not to University systems. It is available across all campuses.
If you are visiting from an institution that has eduroam, please use this to connect to the internet.
Using the guest wifi
If visitors plan to use their own devices while on campus, they need to be aware of any local security restrictions their device might have. We are seeing more devices that are locked for security and therefore cannot connect to a guest or free wifi service. If this is the case, you will need to make alternative arrangements to get connected to the internet like a local hotspot or tethering of some kind (for this you will need good mobile network coverage).
Visitors can connect to the GuestUoW network temporarily (3 days) using a laptop, tablet or mobile phone. Please follow these instructions:
- Go to your device network settings and select the network called GuestUoW
- Open a browser and try to visit any web address (eg http://www.example.com), this will take you to the T&Cs for GuestUoW. Read and accept these.
- This network allows you to sign in using your Google account details or your Facebook sign in details. You can also use a different email address like aol.com but you will be asked to check this email account for a confirmation email. You will be given access to the network for 5 minutes in order to receive and access a confirmation email. Open the email and click on the registration link. You must verify this email address using the same device you are trying to connect to the guest wifi.
- You’ll now have automatic access for 3 days. After this time you'll need to repeat the registration process.
If you are attending an event on campus, please do check with your employer or your IT department about whether your work device is able to connect to a guest / free wifi network.
