Wireless Options

Below is a comprehensive look at the three different options for logging in to wireless on campus.

While eduroam does take extra effort to configure, it is the network of choice because of the added security and convenience. Eduroam setup assistance is available at Rasmuson Library (room 401), Butrovich Building (suite 102), and for a limited time at the Wood Center (lower level through the month of November). See hours below.
