New Wi-Fi

The UHI are currently rolling out a new upgraded Wi-Fi infrastructure across all our campuses in response to student feedback on the importance of Wi-Fi to them.

The demand for Wi-Fi services is continually increasing as we all rely on more and more services online throughout our daily lives. Therefore, our legacy systems would no longer be able to support the increasing learning, teaching, collaboration and everyday use of our wireless network provision.

Therefore, we are rolling out a new Wi-Fi system and replacing all our access points to address this demand for years to come.

We want to support mobile working across our campuses. To create a dynamic environment where students and staff can engage and collaborate online.

We want students to be part of a community both in our buildings and online, and to provide online connectivity as a core component of our ICT service provision.

Students and Staff should use eduroam

The 'eduroam' service allows University staff and students to use Wi-Fi services at thousands of participating sites worldwide. This service provides the fastest and most stable connectivity on our campuses.

FE students can use eduroam at UHI but will not be able to access eduroam at other institutions due to content restriction issues.
