Unless they block certain gadgets from connecting, I don't see why not.

Hello,
I'm pretty sure all unis across the UK have the same wifi: eduroam.
Here's some information about connecting certain devices:
Some of the main devices you can have problems with include:
Games consoles;
Wireless printers;
Amazon Echo;
Chromecasts;
Smart TVs; and
Amazon Fire Sticks.

Some of these devices will work over wired connections. For example: if you are living in campus accommodation they can be registered over ResNet to work online. Unfortunately the devices that don't have network ports, and aren't WPA2/802.1X compatible, will not be able to connect to the campus network.
The easiest way to check if your device does support WPA2 Enterprise / 802.1X would be to check the manufacturer's recommendation (usually on the box it came in or is included in the setup documentation), or to search the make and model of the device online.


I hope this makes sense and let me know if you have anymore questions,
