Free Wi-Fi via The Cloud renamed to ‘WiFi Guest’

Published: 24 May 2016

From Tuesday 31 May, visitors using our free WiFi service should connect to ‘WiFi Guest’ instead of ‘_TheCloud’.

The Cloud has been renamed to ensure that students and staff stay connected to WiFi via Eduroam and not The Cloud service – designed for our visitors.

Visitors and prospective students are being encouraged to connect to WiFi Guest account via The Cloud.

Connecting to the service is easy:

  1. Check your WiFi is on
  2. Select WiFi Guest from the available network list
  3. Open browser, refresh the page and follow the on-screen instructions to register or log in

University staff and students should still use the Eduroam service as it has greater capacity and enables access to all University networked services.

The Cloud only enables internet access for guests using our existing wireless infrastructure and its bandwidth is limited.

The service will be extended to other campuses in the near future.
