Instructions for Connecting to Hall Network

All hall residents should note the ITS policies, Campus Network Acceptable Use Policies, for connecting to the hall network. The policies are to ensure the proper use of the University’s network resources in the halls.


For WiFi access, students can access the Wi-Fi.HK via HKUservice (requires no prior configuration) before their mobile devices are configured for connecting to the University’s WiFi network, HKU.  However, please note that the Wi-Fi.HK via HKU is only for quick and immediate network access in an unsecure mode within limited bandwidth.

For accessing the campus network services outside the University network, you will need to first login the HKUVPN gateway using your HKU Portal UID and PIN.  See https://www.its.hku.hk/documentation/guide/network/remote/hkuvpn2fa for the configuration and connection steps for making HKUVPN connection.
