The BYU Office of Information Technology provides wireless (Wi-Fi) access to the campus community from within many academic buildings. Users with wireless-enabled computers or other devices may access the internet using this wireless service.
There are currently 4 wireless networks available across campus depending on your location:
The Eduroam network uses state of the art wireless security to provide a secure wireless internet and network connection for current BYU patrons (student, faculty, staff, retiree, etc.) as well as guests from participating Eduroam institutions. For more information about eduroam please visit go.byu.edu/eduroam.
The BYU-WiFi network provides internet connectivity for campus users, guests and devices that are unable to connect to the eduroam network. This connection is unencrypted, but does allow users affiliated with BYU to access the campus network.
(For more information about BYU Wi-Fi please visit the BYU Wi-Fi page.)
The eduroam and BYU-WiFi networks are available in the following locations:
ASB, B49, ELLB, ITB, JFSB, FPH, MCA, MCKB, MLRP, PGMS, SWKT
NOTE: As we continue to improve the campus wireless network, other locations will be added to this list. All other buildings with Wi-Fi have the BYUSecure and BYUGuest networks available.
The BYUSecure network is available in most campus buildings and requires a password to connect. The password for the network is “byuwireless”. Only users with an active role within the university (student, faculty, staff, retiree, etc.) will be able to access this network. Devices connecting to this network need to be registered with the campus network access control system. Registration is automatic for devices with a built-in web browser.
Note: Other devices will require manual registration. For instructions see the Network Device Registration page.
The BYUGuest network is available in most campus buildings for the use of guests to the campus who do not have an active user role with the university.
For each of these networks, the first time you connect a new device to the network a browser page will open and you will be prompted for a username and/or password. After you do this initially, you will not be prompted again in the future when connecting to that network.
Network Device Registration allows University employees, faculty and students to register devices, reducing the time it takes to connect to the network for daily use. Device Registration can be used both on campus and in BYU housing. It is NOT necessary to register computers that connect to the BYU wired network in offices, OIT and Department labs, and other work areas.
There is no charge for use of this service.
