Wireless network (WiFi)

The University wireless network is available in almost all University buildings. IT Services has recently invested heavily in upgrading the wireless network: users can now configure their device just once with the relevant connection and login details, after which it will connect automatically whenever it enters a University of Salford WiFi coverage area in the future.

Campus WiFi is available to anyone—student, employee or Associate—who has an active University IT account (username and password).

In addition, visitors from other educational institutions will be able to use campus WiFi to access the Internet/their home institution’s data network, using the Eduroam service, provided that their institution is a member of the JISC Eduroam community.

WiFi is available to users throughout all Peel Park, Frederick Road and Media City University buildings and floors except:

Business House - not currently available (BAM site office).

Centenary Building - limited availability (Ground Floor, HT103, HT201, 3rd Floor).

Faraday House - not available.

Halls of Residence - supplied by CLV.

Joule House - not currently available - coming soon.

Technology House - not available.
