Campus Coverage

Marjon operates an 802.11ac (WiFi 5) and 802.11ax (WiFi 6) wireless network for students, staff and visitors.   While coverage is extensive not all of the campus may have a strong signal, therefore if you find that there is a work area where the signal is not strong enough to connect to the Internet please contact Computing Services so we can fine tune the access points or fit more as required to provide suitable coverage.

Please also note that the access points are NOT compatible with any domestic wireless system as the points MUST be managed by a specialised controller and they are therefore of no use to anyone but wireless users in Marjon. Therefore, please do not remove them for any reason.

Wireless Networks

While on the Marjon campus your device will offer a list of Wireless networks to connect to.  

Marjon-Secure {deprecated}

This connects to a secured wireless network and where conversations between your device and the network are authenticated and encrypted.   This security takes an extra step to configure, but is recommend.

Android devices and different versions of Android OS require some additional steps to be completed as required

  3.  Press [Accept]
  4.  Your 24 hour pass to Marjon-Guest is displayed, Press [Connect]


We do not advise the connecting your printer to the Marjon wireless signal.
First, any other user could find your printer in the air, connect to your printer, and print unexpected documents.  
Second, the printer will also be calling out for connection, in the same airspace as all the other network devices.  Printers, generally use older technology, that has a reduced number of channels.  We tune all the access points to distribute these channels across the campus. Any wireless printer, using an additional channel will disrupt any of the tuning the system has performed, degrading the service for users near you.
We would advise a fixed USB cable as the best option.
