Quick Overview

Step-by-step Instructions (device specific)     


Visiting Eduroam users

Our services are accessible via eduroam.

If you are visiting RGU from an institution that participates in the eduroam scheme, you can connect to the “eduroam” SSID however you are required to configure your device in advance while at your home institution. While connected to RGU’s eduroam service you should use the credentials supplied by your home institution.

Guest access (non-eduroam users)

For external visitors without eduroam The Cloud wifi service is available across Garthdee and the city centre.

  1. Select ‘The Cloud’ from the available network list
  2. Open your internet browser – The Cloud landing page will appear.  If it is your first time using The Cloud wifi network, follow the simple one-time registration process OR log in.

If you experience problems getting online with The Cloud while on the RGU Campus, visit www.thecloud.net/support  

The Cloud offers free internet access for 3 hours total per day per device on the RGU Campus (except where special access may be arranged for Events – check with your Event coordinator).

University staff and students should use the secure and constantly free eduroam wireless service instead.
