  • Welcome to our new students. Once you have arrived in halls or on campus you will want to get online. To do this simply open up your Wi-Fi settings, select the network 'online@brookes', and then enter the password you have been using to enrol online (using PIP).

    You should now be online. If you have any issues at all, just drop into the IT Service Desk in the JHB Forum, where there will be someone to help you.

    Please remember to change to the eduroam network once you have enrolled and have your new student number and University password.

    Changing to eduroam once enrolled

    At Brookes we use eduroam for our Wi-Fi network. It is free, secure and can be used by staff and students when visiting other universities around the world. It is provided by JISC* using their Janet network.

    To add eduroam securely to your devices, once on site:

    1. In your Wi-Fi settings click on the network connect@brookes (this is a captive portal that allows you to get connected without using your 3/4G) and enter the password connectme
    2. Read and agree to the JANET Aceptable Use policy.
    3. Select which device/operating system is appropriate to you.  You will then download a security certificate to your device that configures it to securely access eduroam. When asked to enter your staff/student number, please add @brookes.ac.uk after your number. If asked to re-authenticate at any point, when using eduroam, please always add @brookes.ac.uk to your staff/student number.
    4. Once you have eduroam installed on your device, please FORGET the connect@brookes network.

    If you are not on site, please go directly to  http://go.brookes.ac.uk/connect and set up your device(s).
