All of the computers managed by IT Services are connected to the internet but you can also use the campus wi-fi or cable networks if you have an IT username and password.
If you are a student or member of staff, you can connect your own computers or mobile devices to the Sussex wifi service, eduroam, giving you access to the internet and e-mail when within range of one of the wireless hotspots on campus.
To get connected to eduroam, follow the process detailed in our guide which you can view as a web page or download or print as a PDF. As part of this process, you will be asked to register your computer with the University and follow a short procedure called Xpressconnect to set up the right details on your computer.
Once you are set up to use the wi-fi at Sussex, you can also connect at many other institutions around the world.
If you are living on campus, you can plug your computer into the network connection in your room using the pink cable supplied by your residence. The procedure for connecting with a cable is similar to wi-fi and is detailed in our online guide:
You can use the same procedure to connect a personal laptop to:
a network point in the Library or other common area labelled with an IT Services Roaming Network sticker
network points in staff or researcher offices which are normally labelled with a blue tile
If you are a researcher or member of staff and you are unable to connect your computer to the network point in your office, please contact IT Services for support.
Connection instructions are also available in Chinese:
