Skype is a cost effective and collaborative tool for connecting with others. The University of Oxford no longer requires any special configuration for those using Skype.

It is perfectly acceptable to use OWL or Eduroam for Skype, although we recommend you use a wired network connection, if possible, for a better quality connection and Skype experience.
