For help with eduroam WiFi and campus networks, contact your campus IT Support Center.
Students, faculty, staff, and affiliates have access to high-speed wireless internet from anywhere on campus through eduroam, the new default wireless network for everyone. Connecting to eduroam is simple and secure, and available at no additional cost. Guests at IU can connect through a guest Wi-Fi network.

Wi-Fi access for students, faculty, and staff

You can access Wi-Fi on campus by selecting eduroam as your network, and entering your full IU email address and passphrase. The best and easiest way to access Wi-Fi through eduroam is to use the Eduroam Network Setup Tool, which will help you install a certificate that offers greater security than just your email and passphrase.

Wi-Fi for visitors from other institutions

If you’re visiting an IU campus from a partner institution, you can still join through eduroam using your home campus email address and passphrase, such as username@illinois.edu.

Find the services or tools you need to stay connected.

Wired connections

To create a wired (Ethernet-connected) device, register with IU’s DHCP service. Typically, IU faculty and staff will already have their IU devices registered, but DHCP can help you register additional devices.

Wireless networks for IU departments

If your department would like to set up a mobile or temporary wireless network, UITS can help. You’ll need to request an exemption, then follow the instructions provided by your wireless device’s manufacturer to set up the network.

Guest Wi-Fi for IU visitors

Guests visiting IU campuses can access Wi-Fi by using the IU Guest network. Select IU Guest from the list of available networks and follow the instructions on the IU Guest page that will open.
