Wireless (On Campus)

Library Connect Wireless (On Campus)

Wireless is available in select areas on campus at both JCU Townsville and Cairns campuses. Buildings with wireless coverage have signs indicating the coverage in that area. The coverage areas section of this site has maps that detail locations where a connection can be made, but is not all inclusive.

For visiting academics from other eduroam supported institutions, JCU supports eduroam connectivity.

Linux Users

Due to the number of different linux configurations we do not have any published guides for Linux.

PDA Users

Due to the number and inherent limitation of the PDA operating systems we do not support connecting PDA's to the Eduroam Wireless network. It may be that your PDA can connect but InfoHelp will not be providing any support for these types of devices.
