Institute of Criminology


Wireless Internet is available throughout most of the Institute of Criminology. The primary HotSpots are indicated with WiFi signs. 
HotSpots can be found in all communal areas, including the foyer, library, common rooms, meeting rooms, visitor area and all student spaces. Coverage may extend outside these areas but cannot be guaranteed. 

There are 2 wireless services available:

UniOfCam-Guest | eduroam



If you have a laptop that is WiFi enabled you should be able to take advantage of this UniofCam-Guest service. If you are unsure whether your laptop is WiFi enabled, or have any questions about the UniOfCam-Guest wireless service, then please contact the Computer Office in room 2.10.

Additional information on how to access the UniofCam-Guest wireless network is available on the 'UniOfCam-Guest page'.

When using UniOfCam-Guest at the IoC you are connected to the Internet and your computer and the data on it may be at risk. Please make sure of the following things for your own security:

  • Your operating system is up to date (i.e. all the latest updates and patches are installed).
  • Your virus scanner is up to date. Students and staff of Cambridge University are entitled to a free copy of McAfee Virus Scan. More information can be found here.
  • Your laptop has a secure password. More information on creating a secure password can be found on the University's passwords page



Eduroam Logo


eduroam (education roaming) is the secure, world-wide roaming access service developed for the international research and education community.

eduroam allows students, researchers and staff from participating institutions to obtain Internet connectivity across campus and when visiting other participating institutions around the globe by simply opening their laptop.

In order to provide a consistent service for all wireless users and to keep traffic usage levels with acceptable limits, traffic on the UniOfCam/eduroam network is monitored for excessive use. Users with high levels of traffic will be contacted and asked to moderate their usage. Measures will be taken against those who continue to have unacceptable traffic levels.

Connecting to eduroam

In order to connect to eduroam you will need an eduroam username and password. The page that opens will need you to log in with your Raven account to gain access to your details.

Once you have your eduroam token, the connection setup depends on which operating system you are running. Please see here for the Computing Services instructions on how to set up eduroam. The instructions cover most operating systems, including mobile devices.

If you are having difficulty setting up your machine or device, please see the Computing Office in room 2.10 on the second floor, where our IT staff would be more than happy to assist.
