Free Wi-Fi Service at CSL Wi-Fi Hotspots for our Staff and Students

The Logo of csl hotspot

Starting from August 2007, students and staff of EdUHK could enjoy free Wi-Fi service at all CSL Wi-Fi hotspots in Hong Kong. This allows EdUHK members to use Wi-Fi (IEEE 802.1 b/g/n) enabled devices such as notebook computers, PDAs or smartphones to get wireless Internet access at close to 6,000 CSL Wi-Fi hotspots in Hong Kong for free. Access is set up simply by logging on the services using EdUHK network account and password. No registration is required. As a reciprocal arrangement, CSL Wi-Fi customers could also use the EdUHK Wi-Fi services in our Tai Po campus and Town Centre.

Users are bound by the Terms and Conditions of CSL Wi-Fi Services when using the CSL Wi-Fi Services. Also, for security reason, users are recommended NOT to use public wireless network for sensitive transactions.

Using Wi-Fi service at CSL Wi-Fi Hotspots (for EdUHK members)

All the CSL Wi-Fi hotspots in Hong Kong support web portal login while some support 802.1x login as well at this moment. We recommend using 802.1x connection whenever available as this is more secure.
