Home Service (Southern Regional College Staff and Students)
We operate a “Home” service which means that when you are in the College or away at another eduroam-enabled institution you can use your College credentials to connect to the internet via their eduroam service. Before visiting another institution, you should follow one of the guides below and connect your device to the eduroam WiFi within Southern Regional College. This sets up the connection profile and saves your username and password so that when you visit another institution your device will connect automatically.
Important Note: Please remember that if you change your college password that you will need to changed this in your WiFi settings for eduroam too.
