Connecting to the wifi in the library



eduroam is a secure, world-wide roaming access service developed for the international research and education community.  It allows students and staff from participating institutions to securely connect to the Internet for free on their personal laptops or mobile devices, not only on their own campus but also when visiting other participating institutions providing a 'Visited' service. 

eduroam provides two service types that each institution can support; 'Home' and 'Visited':

  • The Home service means that you can authenticate and gain network access at your home organisation, and at other eduroam enabled organisations that have implemented the Visited service
  • The Visited service allows visitors from organisations that have implemented a Home service to authenticate and gain network access.

Southampton Solent University is providing both a 'Home' and 'Visited' service.

  • As a visitor using the eduroam network, your login name is your email address. For support, you would need to contact your institution.
  • As a student of Solent University, use the standard wifi network 'SolentNet'.
