There are over 2200 access points on campus and in Halls that provide wireless access to the Internet. Locations include the refectory, most cafes, the Edward Boyle and Brotherton Libraries and most University departments.
The University of Leeds uses eduroam (education roaming) the secure, world-wide roaming access service developed for the international research and education community.
Using the Universitys wireless service is free and easy to use once you have set up a device it should automatically connect each time you are in range of a wireless access point.
Eduroam is the preferred method to connect to the wireless service as it allows you to log in automatically and securely. Not only is connecting your own devices to the University wireless useful here in Leeds, many other Universities worldwide also use eduroam.
You can connect up to 5 devices to eduroam concurrently and there is a tool to automatically configure your device. There are also manual instructions available:
- Automatic tool for the majority of device types
- Windows and Apple Laptops
- iPads & iPhones
- Android devices
- Linux devices
Please note: When changing your password you will need to change it on all the connected devices.
