Wireless networking is available at Wolfson supplied by the University of Oxford IT service, based on two services: eduroam and OWL (Oxford Wireless LAN).
Oxford Remote Access Account
To connect wirelessly you must first register for an Oxford Remote Access account. Learn more.
eduroam (education roaming) is the secure, world-wide roaming wireless access service developed for the international research and education community. It allows its users to visit other organisations and use the same username and password as they would use at their home institution. Learn more.
This service makes use of the Remote Access accounts and Cisco VPN service that IT Services offers to all University members. Learn more.
This service is only available in College. It can be useful to help diagnose problems with eduroam (as all the equipment involved is run locally) or for devices that don't support the enterprise Wi-Fi features required to log into eduroam. Keys for devices (one key per device) can be obtained by sending a request to the IT Team.
Other Members of Common Room
Members of Common Room who are not members of the University will need to connect to the
OWL wireless network, but will have to enter a username and password when they first start using the connection. These passwords will be issued by college IT Staff at IT Surgeries, to Members of Common Room who require them. This service is unencrypted, and members using it are advised to encrypt sensitive data in some other manner when using this service. In other locations in the University, Members of Common Room may have to connect to the
OWL-Visitor wireless network.
