Wireless internet network services

The University's wireless network lets you work from just about anywhere inside the Sir Owen G Glenn Building.

About the network

The University provides a wireless computer network based on the 802.11 standard, which allows any suitably equipped device (eg, a laptop or phone with a wireless network adapter) to:

  • Connect to the University network
  • Access Terminal Services (the Business School’s remote access service)
  • Print files and documents
  • Access services and resources such as internet access, CECIL, and Library databases

All students on University wired computers or their own wireless-connected devices have no restrictions on how much internet data they consume.


The wireless network in the Sir Owen G Glenn Building covers most computer labs, lecture theaters and common areas. Let us know at the Level 0 Reception desk if any area in the Sir Owen G Glenn Building does not have adequate coverage.
