Wi-Fi for other users of the Library. 

If you are from another university or college you can use eduroam via your own institution. When you open a browser your device should automatically connect. If eduroam is not set up on your device you'll need to get instructions from your home institution.

If you are a visitor without access to eduroam, you are welcome to use the UniOfCam-Guest wireless network, which is open for all visitors to connect their personal devices to the internet. Registered readers are able to access subscription e-resources while using the Library (in person) by selecting the Library reader option and logging in.
