Wireless setup

In 2015, connecting your device to Wireless is much simpler than it used to be. Check out page 6 of the downloadable 2015 Student IT Handbook (.pdf, 1.5MB) which is also available to pick up from the Central Library.

You can find individual handouts for setting up the wireless on our tipsheets and handouts page. In some areas, for instance some Residential Colleges and non-Dunedin campuses, you still need the proxy in order to access the internet and you can find handouts containing proxy setup on our handouts page too.

Our friendly Student IT Advisors are also available to help you set up your wireless during library hours - please bring your laptop or other portable device along to the Student IT Desk at the Central Library if you need help setting up.
