JCU students and staff can connect to the JCU Wireless Network using the Eduroam Service. See Getting Connected to Wireless for information about how to connect to Eduroam on supported Operating Systems.

Visitors to JCU from an institution that participates in the Eduroam (Education Roaming) Service can connect to the JCU Wireless Network using an Eduroam connection. See Eduroam Service for more information.

To access a JCU network file share or establish a remote connection to a computer on campus from other locations will require you to use the JCU Virtual Private Network (VPN); see Making a VPN connection to JCU.

Troubleshooting

Eduroam is down and I need to access a JCU file share?

If you are at one of the locations listed above and the eduroam SSID is currently not available and you wish to access file shares or an on campus computer then a VPN connection will be required. See Making a VPN connection to JCU for instructions.
