  • University Wi-Fi

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

    Brookes WiFi is our guest Wi-Fi service available across all campuses. Please ask at your nearest reception or IT Service Desk for the password. If you are living in halls, please visit our Wi-Fi in Halls webpage for information the networks available to you there.

    We recommend that students and staff register for and use our eduroam service for the best Wi-Fi experience. It is the world-wide roaming access service that allows students, researchers and staff to obtain internet connectivity across campus and when visiting participating institutions. Eduroam is provided by JISC using its Janet network. You will need your Brookes student/staff number followed by @brookes.ac.uk and password.
