Stay connected with WiFi calling on campus
Make and receive calls and send text messages on campus even when you have no mobile signal
To help you stay connected, we’ve made a change to the University’s wireless network to improve WiFi calling across campus.
As the name suggests, WiFi calling lets you make and receive calls and send text messages over the internet using the University’s wireless network. This is really handy if you’re somewhere on campus that has little or no mobile signal.
How does it work?
Most major UK networks offer WiFi calling. To be able to use it you’ll need a smart-phone that supports WiFi calling and you’ll need to make sure that this has been enabled on your device. Then as long as you are connected to the University’s eduroam wireless network your phone should automatically switch to WiFi calling if you’re in an area of campus that has little or no mobile signal without having to register or download an app or anything first.
