What to expect

Wi-fi access

There are three wi-fi networks at Griffith University:

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 visiting patrons to Griffith University who do not have a staff portal account and are not from an eduroam-participating institution.

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

  • student wi-fi printing, which enables printing from a laptop to any campus common-use printer
  • network storage, which provides Griffith University staff and students with secure access to personal files stored on the Griffith File Servers.

Remote access

The service provides flexible remote access to university resources including modem dial-up and wi-fi broadband, whether in Australia or abroad.
