On-campus Wi-Fi Connection
CityU Wi-Fi provides high speed wireless Internet and campus network access covering virtually the entire campus. To connect to a CityU wireless network, all that is needed is a device with an 802.11a/b/g/n/ac (Wi-Fi 5) or ax (Wi-Fi 6) wireless card. Users can surf the Internet, check email, and much more from anywhere within the covered areas. Currently, three types of Wi-Fi services are available for the University community:
CityU Wi-Fi network is solely for CityU members (staff, students and alumni) with CityU EID. CityU members can login to the network ID (SSID) “CityU WLAN (WPA)” or “CityU Alumni” to gain access to the Internet with higher transfer speed and better performance. Currently over 2,800 access points are installed on campus covering most areas including the University Concourse, lecture theatres, classrooms, Student Residence, etc.
Eduroam stands for "Education Roaming" and it is a world-wide free Wi-Fi service offered by eduroam participants. CityU has joined eduroam since 2008. Eduroam participants including CityU staff and students can connect to the SSID “eduroam” to gain Internet access in all participating institutions worldwide.
Free Wi-Fi service is an initiative of the Government of Hong Kong Special Administration Region for providing free Internet connectivity in many public venues. CityU also provides free Wi-Fi service to guest and campus since 2014 and the SSID used inside the CityU campus is “Wi-Fi.HK via CityU”.
