Getting connected

There are three wireless networks at Griffith University:

  • Griffith University: for Griffith students and staff.
  • eduroam: for students and staff from other institutions (see below for further information).
  • Griffith Public WiFi: for visitors.

Staff and students can use either the Griffith University or eduroam wireless networks, however we recommend you use the Griffith University wireless network. All networks are equally reliable and secure.

In most cases the process of getting connected is simple:

  2. Type in your S Number and password.
  3. Accept the wireless.griffith.edu.au server certificate.

Some devices require prior configuration (i.e. Windows XP and Nokia smartphones). See the guides to the right for further instructions.

Eduroam

Eduroam is an agreement between educational institutions to share access to their wireless networks to enable inter-institutional roaming.

Being part of eduroam federation allows all Griffith staff and students visiting another institution to connect to the eduroam wireless network at these locations. Depending on local policies at the visited institutions, participants may also have additional resources at their disposal.

Please note that eduroam is only available to users over 18 years of age or those users who have acquired parental consent to use the “non-filtered” Internet access.
