Wireless connectivity to the campus network is widely available across campus.
Faculty, students, and staff are encouraged to use the Eduroam or “uchicago-secure” SSIDs by authenticating with a CNetID and password. Guests access to the campus wireless network requires sponsorship by faculty or full-time staff members. Guests from organizations participating in Eduroam may log on with their home institution’s credentials. For more information see the Wireless Overview Page and the entry in the ITS services catalog.
