Hall WiFi

To set up the University wifi, whether you are on campus or in a hall with wifi you will need to follow the instruction to set up eduroam on your wireless device. Eduroam is the best option for connecting and allows you connect to the wifi of other academic institutions automatically. Alternatively you can connect to UoM_WIFI. See here for more information about the university wireless provision.

Please note the following halls are privately owned and DO NOT have WiFi provision:

  • Manchester Gardens
  • Methodist International Hall
  • Weston Hall

Reporting a problem with WiFi

If you have problem connecting to the WiFi please log a problem on the Hornet terminal or via the Hornet Portal. If you are not a Hornet user you can sign up as a wireless user against your room and one of the dedicated Hornet reps will make an appointment to come and help you get connected.

On Campus

Many areas of the University of Manchester campus outside halls have WiFi provision. Use of the wireless network is available free of charge to all students and staff of The University of Manchester. See here for more information about the university wireless provision.

Connecting to Wi-Fi

Eduroam is the preferred Wi-Fi network at the University.

All eduroam usernames start with your IT account name and finish with @manchester.ac.uk

When setting up eduroam, you must enter the username in the format itaccount@manchester.ac.uk, where “itaccount” is your IT account name.

For example, if your IT account name is v12345ab, your eduroam username is v12345ab@manchester.ac.uk
