  • University wifi

    At Oxford Brookes University we offer two free wifi options to University staff, students and guests.

    Brookes WiFi is our guest wifi service available across all campuses and most halls of residence*. You will use this when you first arrive at Brookes. Please ask at your nearest reception or service desk for the password.

    eduroam is the world-wide roaming access service that allows students, researchers and staff to obtain internet connectivity across campus and when visiting participating institutions. It is provided by JISC** using their Janet network. You will need your Brookes staff/student number followed by @brookes.ac.uk and password.

    Fast and free for all your devices
