WiFi

Overview

Wireless access to the campus network and Internet is provided by over 4,900 WiFi access points and is available in all centrally-administered classrooms, public areas in the main campus, department offices and halls of student residence. A new WiFi service "HKU" is available on 6 July 2015 for use by University staff and students. Additionally, staff and students can also enjoy WiFi access off-campus at CSL and Y5Zone WiFi hotspots in town, and at other local and overseas universities using “Universities WiFi” and international “eduroam” capability respectively.

For visitors from other universities in HK and overseas institutions participating in the consortium "eduroam", they can use the WiFi networks "Universities WiFi" and "eduroam" respectively on campus except in student residential halls. Other visitors and visiting students/residents staying in student residential halls can use "Wi-Fi.HK via HKU" that requires no prior configuration. However, this service is only for quick and immediate network access in an unsecured mode within limited bandwidth.
