On Thursday 31 July, IMT will be decommissioning the lsebasic wireless network service. Users will no longer be able to connect to lsebasic.

In addition to this, from Tuesday 15 July the lsesecure wireless network will not be accessible to new devices, in preparation for the complete decommissioning of the service. Devices with an existing connection to lsesecure will still be able to access it.

When is it happening?

Tuesday 15 July – lsesecure no longer accessible to new devices, still available for devices with an existing lsesecure connection.
Thursday 31 July – lsebasic switched off.

Why is this happening?

IMT is working to upgrade the School’s internet connection to improve speed, capacity and security. Decommissioning the older wireless networks means that IMT can further streamline the wireless service and continue to improve eduroam; a newer, more secure wireless network which is already in use across the School.

Which wireless network should I connect to instead?

Users should connect to eduroam, which will soon be the single wireless network available for LSE staff and students.

eduroam is available across campus including in major lecture theatres, the Library and public areas. eduroam has a wide range of benefits including better connectivity, better security and the ability to seamlessly access WiFi wherever eduroam is available, including at many other higher education institutions across the UK.

How do I connect to eduroam?

Enable WiFi on your device, make sure you are at an area on campus with coverage and choose eduroam as your wireless network. Sign in using your LSE email address and LSE password.
