We are currently still in its early roll-out phase therefore some buildings may not have CONNEXION ready at the time of writing.

This is a short guide on getting you CONNEXION, the new all-mighty & all-encompassing network that allows you use to Amazon Echo or any home devices such as Google Nest or wireless printers in College.

To use CONNEXION, you need to register an Access Key via our CONNEXION Registration Form.

A submitted form will send an approval email to your personal university mailbox to ensure an Access key will be delivered to the correct recipient.

**Please read the approval email and verify the mobile number provided is correct & able to receive SMS messages.**

Once you have approved, an Access Key will be generated on your behalf and sent out periodically via SMS.

Please keep the CONNEXION Access Key secure and do not share it with anyone as it is registered under your name.

An example SMS containing the CONNEXION access key – and of course, it is a fake key 😉

The Access Key will work similarly to your home Wi-Fi password with the addition that you will then have to register your device(much like the Somerville Wi-Fi).

Once connected you need to open a web browser, it should then take you to our registration page, if not scan this QR code

or type this into your browser: https://bcm.some.ox.ac.uk/

You then need to log in with your SSO username and password (this is the first password you set, the one used to access your email (Nexus365).


Windows Laptop & Apple Macbooks:
Your device will be then be checked for version, anti-virus and anti-malware software and the latest updates from Microsoft or Apple for your device.
