  • JRS – wireless access when visiting other institutions

    On behalf of my colleagues in our wireless network team, I’m pleased to confirm that Swansea University is a participant in the Janet Roaming Service

    Therefore, staff and students of Swansea University who have configured a laptop (or other mobile device) to access the wireless network here in Swansea, will then be able to use that same laptop to access wireless in a large number of educational institutions across the UK and beyond. Very often the access is seamless – you’ll just turn on your laptop when you arrive at a participating institution and you’ll be connected to wireless with no further configuration needed.

    Equally, if you’re receiving visitors to Swansea and their home institution is a JRS participant, then they’ll be able to use wireless when they’re here (providing that they configured their laptop for wireless in their home institution before arriving in Swansea).

    Further information (including details of JRS participants in the UK, Europe, Asia Pacific, Canada and Australia) can be found at the link below:

    You’ll also find a handy one-page document entitled “Support Pamphlet for Travelling Users” which is worth printing out and taking with you when visiting institutions.

    It’s also worth reiterating that you must register and configure your laptop for wireless use here in Swansea BEFORE you travel, though – the link below will help you to do this:

    If you have any JRS specific queries, please email us at, or liaise with the IT team that supports your particular department or School.

    (For info, note that JRS is a member of the eduroam federation:, and so you may hear JRS participant organisations refer to the service as JRS or as eduroam)
