CampusNet is our residential and campus-wide network that is available via a wired or wireless connection.
On the morning of Thursday 19 September, we will be introducing a new way of registering with CampusNet for 2019/20. This means if you are a returning student, the way you sign in is going to look a little bit different, but it will be much faster and more efficient.
CampusNet supports a wide variety of network-capable items, and most common devices such as laptops, smartphones, and tablets are automatically supported by CampusNet. When you use your device for the first time on campus and select CampusNet as your network, a registration page should automatically appear.
If it doesn’t, open your web browser and visit rhul.ac.uk/wifi. This should redirect you to our registration page.
You will then be provided with two options: Students and staff, and External users. Select Students and staff and enter your College username and password.
Once you have successfully entered these details you will be registered to our network. You will not need to enter these details each time you want to use the network, just the first time. If you are away from campus for more than a few weeks, like over the Christmas or summer breaks, you will need to complete the registration process again.
We also allow various internet-enabled devices including printers, games consoles and other smart devices. If your device uses wi-fi, but doesn’t have an in-built browser or display (for example, printers or Amazon’s Alexa) you can register it yourself at campusnet.royalholloway.ac.uk. If you are connecting a device to the wired network in your room, it will require manual registration. There is more information about how to register your device on the CampusNet section of the intranet.
Anyone visiting the College can continue to register for 24 hours internet access using CampusNet wi-fi.
