Wireless network access

Wireless internet access is available at many places in the University, including in a large number of Kellogg College’s communal and residential buildings. The logo shown here will sometimes be displayed to alert you to this. The number of access points around the University increases each year.

To connect to the eduroam network in Oxford involves a twostep process: 

  1. Register for a Remote Access account at https://register.it.ox.ac.uk (requires SSO) 
  1. Install the eduroam configuration tool from https://cat.eduroam.org 

Further guidance on accessing and troubleshooting the wireless networks is available at www.it.ox.ac.uk 

VPN (uses the remote access account, not SSO) 

Some library resources are restricted to those who are on the University network. If you are working from home you can join the network using VPN. 

To use VPN, you must register for a Remote Access account and download the Cisco VPN software from https://register.it.ox.ac.uk/  

Further guidance on accessing and troubleshooting the VPN is available at www.it.ox.ac.uk
