Eduroam instructions for current staff or students at the University of Cambridge

Current staff and students can also access the UniOfCam wifi. Use your Raven username and password to sign in.

Wifi for visitors

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 wireless network. To do so, ask for a UniOfCam ticket in the Reading Room between between 9:30am and 12.30pm or 2pm and 4:45pm Monday to Saturday. You can also email your 5 digit Library barcode to readerservices@lib.cam.ac.uk. A ticket will be valid for a limited amount of time - after it expires, please ask us for another one.
