How do I connect to the wireless network at Warwick?

The Wireless Network at Warwick supports devices compliant with 802.11g and 802.11n standards with the latest 802.11ac wave 1 standard being introduced in selected areas. The service operates in both the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz wavebands.

To access the Wireless Network you will need a suitable device equipped with a compliant wireless adapter. Many devices come with this type of network connectivity installed as standard. For Staff & Students a full list of campus locations with full Wi-Fi coverage can be found here.
 
Access to these services are subject to the University’s Information Security Policy and the JANET acceptable use policy.


hotspot-secure

The primary connection to the wireless network for Warwick Staff and Students is by the hotspot-secure service.

hotspot-secure provides users with an easy, fast log-on process using WPA2 Enterprise security to prevent eavesdropping on wireless data. Use your University IT Services username and password to log on.

For detailed information about connecting your device to hotspot-secure please click here.

resnet-secure

Residents in campus accommodation can plug a device into the ResNet service via a network port in each room. In addition, all campus residential buildings are covered by the resnet-secure wireless service.

resnet-secure provides Warwick Staff & Students with an easy, fast log-on process using WPA2 Enterprise security to prevent eavesdropping on wireless data. Use your University IT Service username and password to log on.

Warwick Guest

Conference guests and visitors to the campus can use the free Warwick Guest wireless network anywhere on campus. This operates on a self-service basis, much like public wireless networks in cafes and airports.

Although there is no charge, users must register for an account and agree to the terms of use in order to use the network facilities. Users can register using a web browser on their wireless device and a password will be sent to their mobile phone as an SMS text message.

Access to these services are subject to the University’s Information Security Policy and the JANET acceptable use policy.

Users with a Warwick IT account should not use the Warwick Guest service.

eduroam

For those visiting from another academic institution which participates in the eduroam service, the eduroam wireless network service is available across the campus at Warwick.

Users log-in using their normal IT account as issued by their home institution. There is no need to have a Warwick IT account or to make any special arrangements with Warwick IT Services.

If users find they are unable to log-in, they should contact their own institution for advice.

Users with a Warwick IT account should not use eduroam whilst on campus and should therefore give the hotspot-secure and resnet-secure service a higher preference in their saved wireless networks.
