Campus and facilities
The York St John campus WiFi network is called eduroam.
Users from YSJ can also use Eduroam at other institutions in the UK and abroad. Eduroam WiFi is also available in York city centre. Once set up, your device should connect automatically to Eduroam WiFi whenever it is available.
For further information about eduroam, please visit the eduroam website: eduroam.org
To login to eduroam
- For students who have completed registration, you can connect immediately. If you are using a guest account then you must have changed the account password on a wired campus PC before trying to connect to eduroam WiFi
- Select the WiFi network called eduroam
- Login using your full YSJ email address and usual University password
- You may need to accept or trust a certificate
If you change your University password, you will need to change your eduroam login otherwise the incorrect logins can lock your account.
If a simple login does not work
The main cause of problems is not using the full York St John email address as the user name.
Some devices may not connect automatically. For these, there is a configuration tool on the Eduroam website: https://cat.eduroam.org/
Select York St John University from the list, then download and run the installer package.
These should be set automatically by the Eduroam installer linked to above but are included for reference. Not all settings will apply to all devices.
