Introduction

Welcome to the Bangor University wireless network information pages. Here you will find details of what networks are available, where you can find them and how to connect to them. We’ll also try and answer the most common queries we receive in the frequently asked questions section.

Our wireless network has grown to over fifteen hundred access points over the last few years so you’re never far from a connection wherever you may be on campus. Over the last few years we’ve upgraded our original access points to support the newer 802.11n high speed connections and we’ve also deployed wireless across all of our halls of residences and are constantly looking to expand the network.

If you’d like to discuss anything related to our wireless networks please contact the IT Helpdesk in the first instance on 01248 388 111.
