What are the options for accessing the UWE network?
Note: Before connecting to the UWE network, please ensure you have read and understood the IT Acceptable Use Policy.
From a UWE computer lab
Use a UWE computer, to access:
- The internet
- UWE intranet
- Library online services
- myUWE (student portal)
- UWE Email
- Your UWE homespace and shared network drives e.g H:/ and S:/ drives.
From your mobile deviceOnce on campus, in order to access the internet (not the UWE network) from a mobile device, students need to connect to the UWE wireless network (eduroam). Visitors connecting to eduroam can access their institution's network, if they have external login capability.
eXternal Access (XA)
The eXternal Access (XA) service allows staff and students to access their UWE homespace and shared file areas (e.g H:/ and S:/ drives). All XA users have access to the UWE intranet as if they were on campus.
Staff are also able to access a desktop giving access to Microsoft Office programs, e-mails and the intranet.
