Wireless on campus

WIFI networks

The University has several wireless (WIFI) networks.

UniSC students and staff generally use the University's eduroam network to access the internet, USC Central, Canvas and email.

What this means for you

For staff and students of UniSC when on a UniSC campus (at Sunshine Coast, SCHI, Fraser Coast, Gympie or the Noosa J) or when visiting other member institutions, this will allow you to connect to the wireless eduroam network using your UniSC credentials.

Visiting students and staff from other participating universities can connect to the wireless eduroam network provided on the UniSC campus using your home institution's credentials. For details of this service and to see a list of member institutions visit eduroam.

eduroam WIFI

  • supports Mac, Windows and mobile device operating systems
  • is available in all buildings at the Sunshine Coast, SCHI, Fraser Coast, Gympie campuss (also Gympie TAFE library and canteen) and Noosa
  • is also available at most universities within Australia and many others around the world. Therefore students and staff can connect their laptop or mobile device to WIFI at any university in the eduroam network using UniSC credentials (email address and password).
Connecting to Eduroam

To connect to the eduroam wireless network you will require a wireless capable laptop or mobile device.

When connecting to the eduroam wireless network it is very important to include both your home institution’s username as well as your home domain, eg tsmith@institution.edu.au (plus your current password) in order to login.

For UniSC staff and students this will be your email address, eg username@student.usc.edu.au if you are a student and username@usc.edu.au if you are a staff member.

The UniSC WIFI network provides staff and students using eligible UniSC-owned devices access to the same services that are available via the wired network.

Staff can find more information in the Connecting to WIFI section of the Getting connected to UniSC's IT systems page on MyUniSC.

Visitors can arrange to access the UniSC Guest WIFI network by contacting the IT Services Desk prior to their arrival.
