Heythrop staff and students visiting other institutions

eduroam is provided for Heythrop staff and students who are planning to visit another institution. You will need to configure your laptop for eduroam at Heythrop and check it is working before visiting as the visited institution cannot sort out authentication problems for visitors. 

Does the institution participate?

Before visiting an institution, check whether they participate in the eduroam service. A list of participating institutions throughout the UK is available on the  JANET website.

The list shows each participating institution, with links to instructions for accessing the eduroam service, as well information on the type and location of access points, the type of service they support, and the procedure.

Configuring your laptop or device

eduroam can be complex to setup initially, so we advise you to contact the IT Helpdesk by emailing help@heythrop.ac.uk who will set the laptop/device up for you.

Your username and password

Students: You will need to use your HELIOS username and password in the following format: 124567@heythrop.ac.uk

Staff: You will need to use your HELIOS username and password in the following format: j.blogs@heythrop.ac.uk

Your password will be your normal user password for network access.

If the site you are visiting is a "JRS2" or "JRS3" enabled site, then users should use the "eduroam" SSID. Your password will be your normal user password for network access.

What can you access?

Heythrop staff and students using eduroam at another institution should have access to the internet so you should be able to access your webmail and HELIOS.  Please note, however, that the institution you are visiting may restrict your ability to access certain internet features.

Test you can connect before travelling

Before travelling to another site to use eduroam, we advise that you test your device connects to the eduroam signal at Heythrop College.


More information about the eduroam service can be found at on the  eduroam website.

All Heythrop students and staff are bound by the Heythrop College Computing Regulations.
