 Recent Service Changes:

WiFi: Certificate Renewal

Updated: 10 Dec 2021 at 2:17pm Birmingham Affected

On Thursday, 9 December we renewed our wireless network certificate. This is the digital certificate provides you with a secure connection to our wireless network.

This is a standard process which we are required to do every two years to ensure that your connection to our wireless eduroam network remains secure.

The change shouldn’t affect your connection to eduroam but once we’ve applied the new licence you may receive a pop up message when you next attempt to connect to the wireless network on your laptop or mobile device, which asks you to verify the new certificate.

If you do receive this pop up message, just click continue, connect or trust, depending on your device, and you will be able to connect to the University’s wireless network as normal.

If you have any issues connecting to our wireless network following the change then please contact the IT Service Desk.
