Introduction SGUL is participating in Janet Roaming, a service that allows a person to access the Internet at any participating organisation by using their own username and password. For more information about the Janet Roaming Service (JRS) and a list of participating sites, please visit: http://www.ja.net/roaming Visitors at SGUL will be able to use the Internet via the Wireless Service, and access web e-mail, web or ftp based file stores and any other web applications such as VLEs and Portals. The level of access will vary and depends both on the organisation you are visiting and your home site. SGUL users will be able to access local institutional facilities such as applications, printing, etc. For further information, see the Computing Service website at: https://portal.sgul.ac.uk/org/lis/computing-services/helpdesk/jrs/?searchterm=jrs
