IT Information

Many of you will be coming to the college with a wealth of knowledge about computing and the internet, others will know less, but I suspect all will have some curiosity about the computing and data facilities offered in college. To address the questions commonly posed by new members, the IT Department keeps a website explaining the services available to you both within Corpus and the wider University, which is available at:

Two points of which to be particularly aware:

Oxford SSO Account
New students receive two e-mails from the ‘Student Information & Advisory Service’.  The first will provide your Student Number, and the second will give details of your Oxford IT Account (officially known as the Oxford Single Sign-On account).  You must follow the instructions in this second e-mail in order to activate this Single Sign-on account, which is used in systems across the university, from e-mail to computer rooms.

Connecting to the Internet
Internet access across Oxford University relies on a ‘Remote Access’ password. In order to get online as soon as you can after arriving in college, I highly recommend that you set up your ‘Remote Access’ password before you arrive.  To do this, once you have successfully set up your Oxford Single Sign-on account (mentioned above), visit and register for a remote access account password.  This will set the password you need to join the wireless networks. For instructions on how to connect to the networks, you may have an additional sheet with this letter, otherwise, please see the summaries here  You may wish to note or print out the instructions to use once you arrive in Oxford.
The IT team has set aside 3pm – 5pm on Tuesday the 2nd October to be available in the IT Office in the Old Lodgings to help with any issues or questions you have. In the meantime, if you have any questions concerning IT provision at Corpus which are not addressed by the website above, please do not hesitate to get in touch using the email address at the head of this letter.

We look forward to seeing you in the college.
