Wireless for external (non-University) readers

We are now finally able to offer access to the wireless network for non-University members. If you are an external reader (ie, your library card is any colour other than blue!) and you would like to be able to connect your laptop to the internet in the VHL, please ask at the desk and we will issue you with an account username and password. This will allow you access via the OWL-VISITOR network.

Things to note:

  • Visitor accounts are short-term and all accounts issued will expire in December. If you want to continue using the wireless network next term you will need to re-register in January.
  • Access to the wireless network will not guarantee you access to all the University’s electronic resources. Most subscribed e-resources are IP-authenticated and therefore will not be available via the wireless network.
  • There is effectively no technical support for this service as OUCS will not support non-University members.
