    I don't go to Nottm Uni directly but have a swipe card under the Sconul Access scheme and have been there many times before. But I've never taken my laptop there before.

    My question is, how do internet access in the library work from a laptop? Can anyone access it or do you need a username and password, the same as you do for the PCs in the library?

    Thanks.

    When you turn on your laptop and scan for networks there will be one that says UON-Guest. Select that, open your browser and on the left hand side of the screen there will be a box to type in your email address (hotmail, gmail, etc). Do that, click ok and it will take you to google (or the nottingham uni website - I can't remember which)

    If you are from another uni, use Eduroam - faster and encrypted (Guest is unencrypted, and anyone can see what you are doing. I think the uni website has details on accessing Eduroam.
