Connecting to the SHU Wireless network

Students and staff

Students and staff can access the University WiFi by connecting to the following networks (with your University username and password):

  • If you can see both SHU-USSL and SHU-USS, please use SHU-USS.
  • If you can only see SHU-USSL, please use this network.

There may be certain areas of the University where SHU-USSL will give you better performance than SHU-USS.

When connected to WiFi, the software available to you will be dictated by the installations on your device. We make a wide range of software available for you to install for free


Please select one of the following options for details of how to connect:

Android Chromebook iPhone / iPad / iPod Mac
Windows 7 Windows 8 Windows 10


Guests should connect using SHU-GUEST. Due to the wide range of mobile devices and operating systems in use it is not feasible for SHU to provide detailed instructions for all. This guide covers the broadest section of users.
