Health Students – Are you going out on Placement?

Before you go out on your health student placement in Wales there are a few things you should do before you pack your toothbrush.

Make sure you have collected the library placement card, which will enable you to borrow books whilst on placement at NHS Health Boards/Trust libraries around Wales. The library placement cards are ready for you to collect from the enquiry desk of the Health Library on the first floor following announcement of your first placement.

Also make sure you have got the BNF app downloaded to your phone and get the Uptodate mobile friendly site bookmarked.

Look at what the Eduroam access is for the site you are visiting and get it set up to access before you go.

Decommissioning of the CU wifi network- Make the move to Eduroam ASAP

eduroamNext month, the ‘CU-WiFi’ wireless service will be decommissioned. Our preferred service, eduroam, is a secure, encrypted wireless service. Further information and a firm date of when CU-WiFi will be turned off will be provided shortly.
 
Note that staff and students with an Internet connection (e.g. at home) can set up their laptops (not other mobile devices) automatically for Eduroam via http://cardiff.ac.uk/wirelessreg

For further details on wireless services, see
http://www.cardiff.ac.uk/insrv/it/network/wireless/

Why is it being done?
CU-WiFi is not only an insecure network but is also known to adversely affect the performance of the eduroam wireless service. By turning off CU-WiFi, eduroam performance should be improved across campus

Access to Eduroam Wifi @ NHS sites in Wales

eduroam

We are pleased to announce that Princess of Wales and Neath Port Talbot Hospitals are now covered by Eduroam. However windows 8 devices cannot currently connect at these locations.

NHS sites are increasingly being covered by Eduroam. Morriston and Singleton Hospitals are already live.

There is an eduroam app which will locate where your nearest Eduroam hotspots are.

We’ll keep you posted on NHS sites as they come through.

Eduroam is the faster, secure way to connect to Wifi at the University. This connection can then be used when visiting participating institutions to access network resources using the logon credentials from your own institution.

Access to WiFi Service @ Cardiff University

eduroamIf you are already using our Wifi service, please just check that you are logging into Eduroam rather than CUWifi.

Eduroam is a faster and more secure service.

You will also find that if you travel around to other Universities (and coming soon other NHS sites) you will be able to pick up their Eduroam access using your own Cardiff University credentials.

NHS users will find that their sites are increasingly covered by Eduroam. Morriston and Singleton Hospitals are already live. We will post up details of other NHS sites in Wales as we become aware of them.
