Wireless Internet Access

Wireless Internet Access in College is available in three flavours:

* Eduroam
* The Cloud
* OWL

Students – Please use Eduroam. For this, you will need a Remote Access account.

Academic Visitors – Please use the Eduroam credentials from your home institute. If you do not have Eduroam, you are most welcome to connect to The Cloud. Please be aware: Not all Colleges, Departments or Libraries offer The Cloud. In such Circumstances, you will need to ask for an OWL Visitor account from the person you are visiting.

Conference Guests and others – Please use The Cloud. this is a commercial service from Sky, delivered through University of Oxford infrastructure. connecting is via self-service – you will need to register then can get online instantly without the intervention of the College’s computing staff.

Notes:

In order to download and install the Eduroam Automated Configuration Tool, a working Internet connection is required. If you are already in Oxford, you may connect to OWL (without credentials). No other web pages will work over OWL. Once your device is configured using CAT, disconnect from OWL and join Eduroam. This mostly applies to Windows laptop users. MacBook and smartphone users can connect directly to Eduroam and the device should auto-detect the required settings before prompting you for your SSO username and Remote Access password.
