There are some key things to get set up when you first arrive in Oxford:

  • Make sure you activate your Oxford SSO (Webauth) account - access to email, Eduroam Wifi and Library resources depend on this.
  • Connect to Nexus email to ensure that you receive important communications from the University and your department.
  • Ensure that you have received an email from Manor Road IT detailing your account for access to your Department IT resources.
  • Set up Eduroam for wireless access around Oxford: Eduroam Setup Information
  • If your course has a taught element that includes the use of STATA read the information STATA.

Information about IT in Oxford is a little dispersed and may come from IT Services, your college and your Department. It can sometimes be difficult to find a single place with all the relevant information in it. The Links on this page may help you with common key services and questions.
