Your College Wi-Fi Connection

To continue to use the College wi-fi, you will soon have to install an updated certificate on your personal devices and B&FC issued iPhone/iPad.

If you do not install this certificate, you may get the error shown below when visiting a web site.

Please note – you do not have to follow this process for B&FC issued Windows or Mac devices.

Alternatively, you can re-enrol to the College wi-fi via the BFC-BeginHere network. This will install the updated certificate automatically.
