Current YCP members: Wi-Fi & wired

We offer two available wireless networks (SSIDs). On any device, try eduroam first. If that doesn't work or if you are using a wired (LAN) connection, then use york-connect instead.

Notes

eduroam: Wi-Fi

Tip: Once connected, you can also use Wi-Fi at other colleges, museums, and businesses, worldwide. Browse the eduroam map.

Outdoor Wi-Fi locations

Access the web from some of our lawns, benches, picnic tables, and even your parked car.

 

Printers

In most cases, wireless printers will connect to york-connect, though they sometimes have unresolvable issues. This is why we recommend you don't your own printer. If you do, please bring a cable to connect your computer directly to your printer, so that you can print without internet.

Note: To work properly, the computer you're printing from must be connected to eduroam.
