Does the Library provide wireless access to the SFU network?
To access the SFU campus wireless network you need a laptop computer, a wireless network card (NIC) and a valid SFU computing account. Your name and SFU library barcode are not sufficient for wireless access. Wireless network cards are available at the SFU Microcomputer store.
If you are a student, faculty or staff member at another university and not from SFU, you may be able to log into the SFU wireless network via the Eduroam service, which allows end users visiting another educational institution to login using the same credentials they would at their home institution. See SFU IT's Wireless Configuration and Setup Help under the Eduroam section for more information.
While at SFU, if you make use of the Eduroam wireless service and are not a student, faculty or staff member at SFU, you will be considered as being off campus and will NOT be able to access SFU library electronic resources which require a SFU computing ID and password for access.
Note that people without valid SFU computing accounts or Eduroam privileges cannot be signed on to the wireless network with a SFU Library Guest ID.
SFU Alumni have full access to the SFU campus wireless network and may also make use of the Eduroam service when at other educational institutions.
Within the Bennett Library (Burnaby campus), wireless is available everywhere.
Belzberg Library at SFU Harbour Centre provides wireless access to the SFU network throughout the main floor and in the south section of the mezzanine level (closest to Hastings St.).
The Fraser Library (Surrey), like the rest of the Surrey Campus, has wireless access everywhere.
