Keele Wifi at Royal Stoke

You can now access the Keele Wifi service (Eduroam) across many of the main buildings at the Royal Stoke University Hospital. This includes all floors of the main Lyme, Trent and Maternity buildings as well as the Courtyard Annexe and HCSA.

You may not find a Keele connection absolutely everywhere across the site and please be mindful that you won’t have the same bandwidth available in the main hospital areas as within Keele-based buildings (for obvious clinical considerations).

However hopefully this will represent an improved service to Keele students and staff.

Useful access that you might like to consider:


NHS staff wanting to use the hospital wifi should contact the RSUH IT department. Note that temporary Keele login accounts can be used to access the Keele wifi – see your login sheet for instructions.
