Information Technology Services Centre - Switch to Use Eduroam with Termination of Universities WiFi on 1 Aug 2017
  • Submit
  • The termination of Universities WiFi on 1 August, 2017 and suggest you shifting to use eduroam to meet your access needs both on campus and in other tertiary institutions.

    The “Universities WiFi” was a joint effort of the 8 local UGC funded institutions (JUCC) since 2008 for Wi-Fi roaming among the local institutions; while eduroam is a World Wide Education Roaming for Research and Education.

    Both SSIDs serve similar purpose with Universities WiFi covering local institutions while eduroam covers an even larger scope by including overseas institutions.

    For this reason, JUCC observed a declining usage trend of the Universities WiFi while the usage of eduroam is continuously growing. In order not to duplicate the supporting efforts and resources, JUCC decided to decommission the SSID Universities WiFi on Aug 1, 2017 00:00; and encourage users to use eduroam instead.

    From our record, you are a current user of Universities WiFi in different universities. Not to interrupt your network experience, you shall now start switching to use SSID eduroam with the same login account.
