Campus WiFi upgrade – verifying digital certificate

Updated: 10 May 2022 at 10:59am | Maintenance Window: 20 May 2022 7:00am to 20 May 2022 8:00am Birmingham Affected

On Friday, 20 May, we will be upgrading part of the campus WiFi network to increase capacity, improve authentication speed and performance and increase resilience. As part of the upgrade, our wireless public signed server certificate will need to be updated. This is the digital certificate that authenticates your account and provides you with a secure connection to our wireless network.
Following this update, 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, ensuring that you are in a campus location and are expecting to see the eduroam network, 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 problems connecting then please contact the IT Service Desk.

Change to How You Login to University Systems

Updated: 28 Mar 2022 at 4:23pm Birmingham Affected

From Tuesday, 29 March, staff will need Multi-factor authentication (MFA) to access a wide range of online services at the University including Canvas, Core Systems, Zoom and FindIt@Bham.

Many of you will already be using MFA to access services such as Microsoft Teams. If you’re not, just follow the simple instructions on screen the first time you access an MFA enabled service.

You can watch the video in our MFA set-up guide KB14979. If you have any issues setting up MFA then please contact the IT Service Desk.

You can also find more information about MFA in our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)


What is MFA?

MFA is a way of checking that you really are the person you claim to be when you sign into University services by providing an additional layer of security on top of your username and password. Once you’ve set up MFA, you’ll sometimes be asked to provide an extra piece of information when you log into a University service. This piece of information will be something that only you can access, such as a code sent to your phone via text message (SMS) or voicemail, or created by an authenticator app on your smartphone or other device.

If you’re already using MFA to access the University’s Microsoft 365 services and Remote Access then you won’t have to do anything else. The only difference will be that you may sometimes see the Microsoft MFA authentication screen pop-up for other University services. In this case, just use your preferred verification method(s) to access all other MFA enabled University services.
