About the WiFi Service

Completed in 2016, the Wireless Campus Project was a £1.93m investment by Queen's University to implement a state-of-the-art wireless service across all areas of the campus. The project was an important part of the University's commitment to providing world-class facilities for its staff and students, and enables users to have anytime, anywhere access to the resources they need and to work flexibly across the campus. The WiFi service provides pervasive wireless access across all University buildings and selected outdoor spaces.
