How do I get connected to the Wireless Network?

All staff and students should connect to the campus wireless system via the eduroam network.
The legacy network ‘ulwireless’ has been retired while ‘ULsecure’ will be retired on December 14th, 2020.

Connecting to eduroam with a staff ITD managed device
The ‘eduroam’ profile has already been configured on your device, but when connecting for the first time you may need to connect to the university wired network and restart your device to pick up the latest configuration. When you have restarted your device, select ‘eduroam’ from the list of wireless networks and enter your standard network username and password. Once complete, devices will connect automatically to eduroam on all subsequent occasions.
