University of Exeter Wifi

The Wireless Network (WiFi)

The University runs a wireless network which is freely available to Exeter University students, staff and guests offering flexible access to online resources via laptop, tablet and other wireless devices.

Where can I access WiFi?

The University of Exeter Wi-Fi service covers the majority of the Streatham and St. Luke’s campuses.

How do I connect to WiFi?

There are 3 wireless networks for Exeter University staff and students to connect to: eduroam, UoE_Guest and UoE_Open.

– This is recommended as the default for staff and students across the University. This connection also allows visiting academics and students access to the Internet using their own usernames. For further information see our eduroam setup pages.

UoE_Guest – The UoE_Guest network provides a convienient way for University guests to access WiFi. You will need to provide a name and e-mail address, you will then be sent an e-mail to confirm your guest registration, once confirmed you will have access for 24 hours. UoE_Guest Instructions pdf

UoE_Open – This is a legacy network shortly to be decommissioned.
