LJMU Guest – for visitors to the University
The LJMU_Guest Wi-Fi network is provided for the use of visitors to the University. This is a service provided by Sky and anyone visiting LJMU can use it.
LJMU Staff and Students should use Eduroam, which can support a much higher volume of users.
There is no need to make any prior arrangements for your visitors to use LJMU_Guest. They should simply connect to the network LJMU_Guest on arrival and fill in the simple self-registration web page that they will be presented with.
Please note: visitors from other universities that offer Eduroam can connect to the service at LJMU buildings with the same credentials that they use in their home institution.
