Edge Hill University now provides an eduroam wireless network across our campuses. With eduroam you can login with any Wi-Fi compatible phone, tablet or laptop to give you secure access to the internet and other Edge Hill online services.
Eduroam Wi-Fi networks are available in hundreds of locations across the UK and thousands of places worldwide so when you visit another university or college the chances are you’ll be able to login with eduroam. Browse a map of sites or download the eduroam Companion app for iOS and Android.
