Wi-Fi Hotspots in Public Buildings

About the hotspots

Wi-Fi Hotspots are now available in many of Oxford's free to enter public buildings which has successfully created an extensive Wi-Fi zone around the city.

Residents, visitors, students, and businesses can now enjoy free Wi-Fi in all community centres, libraries, Park and Ride sites, the visitor information centre and museums such as The Ashmolean and Museum of Natural History.

This will support our city in becoming an even more attractive place to live, do business, visit and invest in.

Alongside superfast broadband , the wireless networks will be a key ingredient in our aspirations for Oxford to become a Smart City.

How the hotspots work

When searching for a Wi-Fi connection simply select "Oxford Free Wi-Fi" and click on "Get Online". This is a free service and we are pleased to offer this to all our visitors.

Super Connected Cities Programme

The project is part of the Super Connected Oxford programme and is funded by BDUK's Urban Broadband Fund and by Oxfordshire Local Enterprise Partnership's Growing Places Fund.

It forms part of a £150million investment from government to transform the digital capability of UK cities, making them even more attractive places to live, do business, visit and invest in. Millions of visitors, citizens and business men and women can take advantage of this huge boost to free connectivity in the UK.

More than 1000 public buildings in cities across the UK have been transformed into free Wi-Fi hotspots and these have been available since March 2015.

More information on the SuperConnected Cities Programme can be found on the GOV.UK website. and a list of hotspots is shown on the map below:
