Remote Access Account

 

The Remote Access Account, more commonly referred to as your Eduroam or Wi-Fi Account is different to your SSO Account and provides just two functions (listed below). The Remote Access Account is critical if you intend to work from home or utilise the Eduroam Wireless Service.

For Eduroam Access your Remote Access Username will need to be entered in the following format with your Remote Access Password:

SSOUsername@OX.AC.UK e.g. abcd1234@OX.AC.UK

For VPN Access your Remote Access Username will need to be entered in the following format with your Remote Access Password:

SSOUsername e.g. abcd1234

Registering for a Remote Access Services Account is a simple process and can be done via the IT Services Self-Registration Page. Eduroam and Cisco are only available if you have set up and know the details of this account. If you ever need to change your Remote Access password, select ‘Change a Remote Access (Eduroam WiFi/VPN) account password.’
