Wi-Fi and internet access
With greater coverage over our five campuses, increased connectivity and faster download speeds, Griffith Wi-Fi network is keeping you connected. We provide internet access for education and research purposes to all active students and staff. All internet traffic is monitored and recorded against your Griffith account. See the University's Information Technology Code of Practice.
Stay connected... update your Griffith Wi-Fi before 19 Oct 2019
On 29 August we made security improvements to existing Griffith Wi-Fi networks. This changes the way you connect your device, to give you more secure and trusted access to our Wi-Fi network, keeping you safe from potential cyber threats.
How will this change affect you?
If you use the Griffith University Wi-Fi network, you need to forget your existing Griffith Wi-Fi settings and follow our Getting Connected guides to update your laptop, phone, tablet or other Wi-Fi device. The set up process will only take a couple of minutes per device and you can do this at a time that is convenient for you. You will need to do this before 19 October 2019, or you will lose Wi-Fi connection until you have updated to the secure Wi-Fi settings.
Griffith managed Windows laptops and Microsoft Surface devices have been automatically updated as part of the standard software installation. Staff still need to manually update their mobile phone, tablet, Mac, Linux or other Wi-Fi device by following the Getting Connected guides.
