The Betty & Gordon Moore Library


Using the wireless network

There are two wireless networks available at the Library, one is the UniOfCam (formerly Lapwing) wireless hot-spot facility run by University Information Services (UIS) and the other is Eduroam.

The UniOfCam service is available to all current staff and students of the University of Cambridge, using a Raven password.  Other categories of Library user are welcome to use the wireless network.  For this they will require a temporary 'UniOfCam ticket', which is issued on request and valid for up to 60 days at a time.

Eduroam is an international initiative that allows members of educational establishments to gain internet access at other member sites easily, using credentials from their home site in a secure manner. The JANET Roaming Service (JRS) is part of Eduroam.

Cambridge is a participating organisation in the JRS and has:

  • Home organisation status which allows Cambridge users who are visiting an insitution that is a member of JRS / Eduroam to access the network using their Cambridge credentials.
  • Visited organisation status which allows visitors to Cambridge, from other member institutions, to access the network using the credentials provided by their home institution.

Getting a UniOfCam (formerly Lapwing) ticket

If you would like access to be set up in advance, please e-mail the Moore Library, quoting your library barcode if you have one already, this will be the 5 digit number beginning with V that can be found on the front of a UL card or the back of a University card. Our staff will contact you with details of your UniOfCam ticket, which will be valid for up to 60 days from the date you first require access. Or, simply enquire at the Service Desk.

Information for current University of Cambridge users on how to configure your wirless device, including mobiles, iPhones etc., to use Eduroam is available from UIS
