What to expect

Wi-fi access

There are three wi-fi networks at Griffith:

eduroam

eduroam is an agreement between educational institutions to share access to their wi-fi networks to enable inter-institutional roaming. Griffith University staff and students who visit other universities can connect to another university's eduroam wi-fi network.

Griffith Public wi-fi

Griffith Public Wi-Fi is a pay-per-use wi-fi network intended for visitors who do not have a staff portal account and are not from an eduroam-participating institution.

Griffith’s wi-fi service supports a large range of laptop and mobile devices. Setup guides are available to configure personal computer to use the Griffith University and eduroam wi-fi networks. Once connected, the following services are also available:

  • wi-fi printing, which enables printing from a laptop to any campus common-use printer
