Connecting to Wi-Fi

Our Wi-Fi is called eduroam (education roaming). For a faster and more secure service University students and staff should connect to eduroam and not Guest Wi-Fi UoP.

Instructions 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:

  • 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
  • all critical updates for your operating system must be installed.
  • a working 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi 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.

The University also provides a free Wi-Fi service for guests. To connect:

  • Select Guest Wifi UoP from the Wi-Fi connection options on your device.
  • A Sign-In Required message may appear. Select Ok.
  • You will be directed to the Connect with Plymouth University page.
  • 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.

You should now be connected to the Wi-Fi.
