Wireless hotspots across campus

The wireless network allows anyone with a University of York username and password to get Internet access from the hotspots listed below.

The list details areas where IT Services have made provision for wireless access (ie installed a wireless access point). The list is not exhaustive as new hotspots are being added all the time. The quality of wireless signal available will depend on:

  • The device being used
  • The number of other devices using the same wifi point
  • Interference from other devices eg microwave ovens, mobile phone hotspots

If you require the wireless network for a specific purpose, we recommend you check availability beforehand. Please remember that a wired connection will always give better performance and reliability.

Please note, wifi is available in some study bedrooms, but not all. Please check the listing for your college below. If wireless is not available, you will need to use the wired Network Access Service.
