The UO-STAFF and UO-EXTERNAL networks (also referred to as the Current State Network) require your device to be registered before you can use them.

AskOtago IT can register your device for these networks:

Tel +64 3 479 7000 or 0800 80 80 98

You will need to provide the following information:

  • your departmental account code (usually in the form GL10xxx00)
  • the Ethernet address of your device (see below)
  • the network you want to connect to (UO-STAFF or UO-EXTERNAL) , and if you are connecting to UO-STAFF, the campus you require access for (Dunedin, Christchurch, Wellington, Auckland and/or Invercargill)
  • a description of your device so it can be identified easily on the network (i.e. Joe Bloggs iPhone 6S S/N:GLX546LP)

Some devices will have different addresses for wired and wireless access. Follow the instructions below to find which address you will need to use:

Once your device is registered, follow the settings on the relevant information sheet to connect to the UO-STAFF network:

Although it is part of the Current State Network, the UO-STUDENT network allows all students with access to resources to connect to it without registration.

If your location has access to the new University of Otago network (UO_WIFI, also known as the Future State Network) you will not need to register your computer or device. You just need to log in using your University username and password:
