WiFi Network

A variety of networks are available for optimal connection:

  • UofM Student, Staff, or Faculty, use the UofM Secure network.  This is the fastest and most robust of our networks. It is secure and encrypted.
  • Conference attendees or visitors or those given a UofM account, also use UofM Secure. This account may be called a sponsored account or a conference account.
  • Visiting student, staff or faculty from another university with an Eduroam network. Use our Eduroam network. It will allow you to use the same wireless credentials that you use at your own institution.
  • All other users on campus, please use our UofM Guest network.

If you are having difficulties connecting to UofMSecure please use our UofM network.   Also, don't hesitate to call our Service Desk 612-301-4357. They can assist you in connecting to our faster and more secure network. 

The University of Minnesota (University) WiFi network is the centrally managed Office of Information Technology (OIT) service that provides campus affiliates and guests with WiFi Internet access as they roam the Twin Cities and Rochester campuses or visit University Extension Services  and Research Outreach Center sites.

The WiFi network continues to grow as we connect and improve performance. Please visit the IT WiFi map to see where coverage is located. OIT is committed to improving WiFi networking on campus by enhancing coverage. However, in some cases it may be more feasible to use wired etherjack service instead of WiFi.

There are more than 7,000 wireless access points deployed on the system. The network runs on 802.11n technology and intrusion detection, central management operations, guest access services, and more.

To report problems with WiFi coverage visit the UMN WiFi Feedback site.
