Connecting to Wi-Fi

Eduroam (education roaming) is a secure, international Wi-Fi service and is available at institutions across the world. 

University staff and students on campus should use eduroam to connect to the wireless network rather than the Guest Wifi as this will provide a more secure and faster service. Instructions for connecting to eduroam can be found below.

Please use the relevant instructions in the attachments to connect your device to eduroam. By using the eduroam service you have agreed to abide by the following rules and regulations:

 Your computer needs to meet the following technical requirements:

  • a working 802.11b/g/n WiFi certified Network card, capable of WPA2-Enterprise encryption.
  • a built-in network adapter. If you have a new computer, then it is likely to be pre-installed. If you are unsure check online or contact the manufacturer.
  • computer hardware must meet the minimum system requirements for the operating system as specified by the manufacturer of the operating system.
  • all critical updates for your operating system must be installed.
  • up-to-date anti-virus software must be installed. If you do not have an up to date anti virus program please view our anti-virus page for information
The University provides a free Wi-Fi service for guests (Guest Wi-Fi UoP)

To connect:

1) Select “Guest Wifi UoP” from the Wi-Fi connection options on your device.

2) A ‘Sign-In Required’ message may appear. Select ‘ok’.

3) You will be directed to the ‘Connect with Plymouth University’ page.

4) You will be asked to fill out your first name, last name, email address and agree to the terms & conditions. After you have completed this, click on submit.

5) You should now be connected to the Wi-Fi.
