The University provides two wireless networks, UniOfCam and Eduroam.

How do I use the wifi service?

Wifi access is available to all current staff and students of the University of Cambridge, using the Raven ID and password issued to you when you join the University.  For more information about Raven, see  http://www.ucs.cam.ac.uk/raven/

To use the UniOfCam wifi network, log in using your Raven login and password. This is a browser-based service and you will need to log in when  you  rejoin the wifi network.

The eduroam service requires that you do some local configuration on your laptop or mobile device. Once you have done the local configuration, You will not need to login each time you access wifi.   For details see http://www.ucs.cam.ac.uk/wireless/eduroam/localusers

Can visitors use the wifi services in libraries?

If you are a visitor from another university, college or institution which supports eduroam, and you have configured your laptop as instructed by your institution’s computing service, you will be able automatically to connect to our wireless network as soon as you open a browser.

Visitors not using eduroam will need a UniOfCam ticket which provides you with a user id and password. You should enquire in the library that you are visiting about getting a UniOfCam ticket with an ID and login which you can use during your visit.
