We have recently updated the way clients are expected to log into our wireless system within Middlesbrough College. The main purpose of the update was to provide a secure and reliable service, keeping our staff and students safe whilst browsing the internet on our network. Depending on who you are and what device you are trying to connect with depends on which Wi-Fi network you select. We have three SSID’s (or Wi-Fi networks):
MC-Online – Middlesbrough College Student or Staff – College Owned Device
Eduroam – Middlesbrough College Student or Staff – Personal Device (BYOD)
MC-Guest – Visitor/Guest
MC-Online – Middlesbrough College Student or Staff – College Device
If you are a student or staff member at Middlesbrough College with a college owned laptop, you will automatically be prompted to sign into MC-Online. Once prompted, you must enter the username in the format of “firstname.lastname@example.org” or “email@example.com”.
For example, if your college username is “M1234567” your username is “M1234567@middlesbro.ac.uk”
This applies to all students and staff, M/MC/TB/TR/TT accounts.
Your password is the same password you usually use to sign into college systems.
Eduroam – Middlesbrough College Student or Staff – Personal Device
If you are a student or staff member at Middlesbrough College and are trying to sign in with your personal mobile or laptop, you will need to log into our Eduroam service. Eduroam is an international wireless service which is also utilised at many education establishments around the world.
