A: In order to connect to the Eduroam wireless network, you need to create a “Remote Access Account” and set a password that will be used for this connection. Details on how to create this account and how to setup your device to connect can be found here. Please note, this Remote Access Account uses a separate password to your normal SSO account.
Connections to the OWL wireless network also require you to register for a Remote Access Account, but also require that you activate a Virtual Private Network (VPN) client to gain access to the internet. Further details on this process can be found here.
Of the two networks, the Eduroam network is the most convenient to use. It will save your Remote Access credentials on your local machine for automatic connection, and it is supported by institutions of higher education across Europe and the rest of the world. This will allow you to connect automatically to these networks outside of Oxford, too, where available.
