University Of Greenwich Wifi

eduroam

The University of Greenwich is fully enabled for eduroam, both as a home site and as a visited site.  This means that University of Greenwich staff and students can use their own credentials to get internet access at all other participating institutions, across the globe, and that users from participating institutions can get internet access when visiting any of our campuses.

Wherever you see the eduroam wireless network, you can connect using your full username@gre.ac.uk and password.  You can find a list of participating institutions here

Any issues experienced with eduroam should be reported to your own IT support staff, so for University of Greenwich users, you should always contact the IT Service Desk.

How do I connect to eduroam? (CAT files)

For the most reliable wireless connection, we recommend that you install a special eduroam setup file, known as a CAT file, on your device.  The CAT file will make all the changes your device needs to connect to the eduroam service at the University of Greenwich.

You can install the CAT file before you arrive at university, so that you are ready to use wireless from day one, or will need to use another network (eg 3G /  4G / The Cloud) if already on campus.

You can  download the CAT file for your device from the eduroam website.  The CAT website should automatically detect the operating system you are using and give you a link to download the appropriate configuration tool. Use the ‘All platforms’ link to find configurations for alternative operating systems.

Follow the instructions and remember to include @gre.ac.uk in your username.  For example, if your university username is 123456, your eduroam username will be 123456@gre.ac.uk
