Click on the link below to launch the setup wizard, then follow the simple onscreen instructions. The autoconfig tool will automatically detect your OS and send the correct configuration to your device.
If you have any difficulty using automatic configuration, contact the Service Desk. Alternatively, you can manually configure your laptop/PC instead - follow the guidelines for your OS below.
If you have a problem connecting to the wireless network after running the XpressConnect automatic configuration, you may have entered your username and password incorrectly within the auto configuration setup. Try the following:
Multi Function Devices (MFDs) and printers are widely available across campus - see spreadsheet for locations.
To print to and MFD or printer via the wireless network, first make sure your device is correctly configured - see Get connected tab - then follow the instructions in the appropriate guide below.
Note: You will not be able to print to a University MFD or printer from home or off campus.
Visitors from HE and FE institutions that participate in the eduroam service can connect to the eduroam wireless network with the same username and password they use at their own institution.
eduroam is a location independent wireless network that allows for inter-institutional roaming. If you are visiting an institution that participates in the eduroam service then you can connect to the eduroam wireless service at the host institution with the same username and password that you use at the University of Aberdeen.
Guests issued with a Guest account (eg visiting academics, conference attendees) can connect to the guestweb wireless network using the userid and password issued to them.
Guests issued with an External account (eg contractors, suppliers, academic collaborators, groups on short courses or summer schools) can connect to the eduroam wireless network using the userid and password issued to them.
Casual visitors to the University of Aberdeen - for example those attending Open Days, May Festival, or other events on campus - can register with the free wireless service Aberdeen-city-connect. Once registered, visitors will pick up the network at other locations across the city, including the Aberdeen Sports Village, museums, and council buildings.
We’re sorry, but University IT Services can’t provide help with connecting to this service.
