Connect to our Network
How do I connect my computer to LJMU?
LJMU participate in the Eduroam (http://www.eduroam.org/) wireless network system and all staff, and students can connect to this secure wireless network using your JMU username and password. You may need to download a certificate and set up security on your computer/mobile phone etc. and instructions on how to do this can be found at http://www.ljmu.ac.uk/ITHelp/our-network/118730.htm.
Older devices that are not compatible with current security options can still use the legacy wireless network 'JMUwireless'. Please note that this wireless network is not encrypted and is not recommended.
Staff are able to connect their own computers to a wired network point. All such computers will be regularly scanned to ensure that they meet the minimum security requirements for connection to the LJMU LAN. For further information about how to connect, see http://www.ljmu.ac.uk/ITHelp/our-network/118731.htm.
