Brookes WiFi is available when you are on any of our campuses and in most of our halls. You can use the wifi before you are enrolled. Please ask at your Halls or any of our reception desks for the password.

To use the University's wifi:

  • Choose the network called Brookes WiFi.
  • Enter the password.
  • Contact the Induction team if you need help

  • When asked to log in, you will need to enter your University email address, eg 12345678@brookes.ac.uk, and password.

For Android devices:

  • Go straight to Google Play and install the eduroamCAT app (GEANT)
  • Select Oxford Brookes from the list of institutions.
