Changes to Griffith Wi-Fi: Coming 29 August 2019
We are updating the security around how you access Griffith Wi-Fi. This will give you more secure and trusted access to our Wi-Fi network, keeping you safe from potential cyber threats.
What will happen?
If you use the Griffith University Wi-Fi network, you will need to install new security settings on your laptop, phone, tablet or other Wi-Fi device.
On 29 August we will contact you with information for connecting your device to the Griffith University Wi-Fi network using the new security settings. We will provide links for How to Connect guides along with instructional videos. 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.
We have started communicating to let you know what to expect on your Griffith managed devices. We will also provide how to connect guides and videos which will help you connect phones, tablets and non-Griffith managed devices.
