Information for visitors to Sussex from other institutions

Visitors bringing laptops or mobile devices that are already set up for eduroam at their home universities, are welcome to connect to the eduroam network at Sussex provided they agree to the University of Sussex Regulations for the Use of Information and Communication Technology (PDF, 80k).

Authenticating to use eduroam

When you connect to eduroam at Sussex, you will be asked to authenticate in the same way as at your home institution with the following details:


Your username is the username provided by your institution who should also be able to confirm their eduroam domain (for example if your username is "jh1761" and your home institution the University of Bristol, you would enter
Should be the same as the password you use to access services at your home institution
(If asked) must be left blank

Useful information

Note that your home institution domain may not be the same as its email domain and you will need to check which realm your institution uses. More information on this is given on the JRS technical support site.

Please also see our information about support for visitors using eduroam.

Non-eduroam users

If your home university does not use eduroam you will not normally be able to use the Sussex eduroam network. If you are attending a conference, the organisers may have made special arrangements for delegates to gain access to the Sussex network for the duration of the event. Please contact your conference organiser for more details.

Otherwise, you are welcome to use the o2 wi-fi service.

Encryption settings

If you have trouble connecting to eduroam when visiting other institutions, you may need to change the encryption settings on your computer. For more information, see our technical information page.
