Please refer to the Library’s Guidelines for Computer Use for important information on the use of Library computer workstations. 

Wireless Network

Eligible users can connect their Wi-Fi capable devices for Internet access through the University’s wireless network. The service is available on all floors of the Main Library, the Chinese Medicine Library, and the Shek Mun Campus Library. We recommend connecting to the “BU-Advanced” network. The “BU-Standard” network will also work. These networks are only available to HKBU faculty, staff, and students.

JULAC Card holders, Graduate Borrower Card holders, and other visitors may make use of the “BU-Guest” network for Internet access when they are at the Main Library or the Chinese Medicine Library. Please note that this network is not available at Shek Mun Campus Library.

For technical assistance, please contact the ITO User Services Hotline at 3411-7899 during office hours. 

For full details of the University’s Wi-Fi services, please refer to the website of the Office of Information Technology.
