Secure Wi-Fi for UD students, faculty and staff

Set up your wireless devices (including laptops) by running the EduRoam Setup Wizard from each device while on campus. You'll be prompted to install the Secure W2 agent on your device and return to the setup wizard to complete the configuration process. 

If you're connecting an Apple computer, see the directions for Joining EduRoam on Mac Computers.

Use this setup tool when first configuring your device or immediately following a password change to refresh your connection settings.

NOTE: If the setup is unsuccessful in configuring your device, contact the IT Service Center.

Proper Wi-Fi setup connects devices safely and automatically across UD’s campus and when traveling within range of EduRoam institutions worldwide. Learn more about EduRoam here >>

Connecting gaming devices and Internet TV to the UD network

Directions for connecting gaming devices and Internet TV are available here >>

Open Wi-Fi for guests and visitors

The unencrypted wireless network provides guests with temporary wireless Internet access.

Self-Registered Guest Access: Visitors to UD can self-register for guest access to UDconnect here.

Self-registered accounts provide a network password good for 16 hours and are renewable up to four times.

NOTE: The self-registration form requires a mobile phone number to fulfill UD's legal obligation of being able to identify users of UD's network. 

Sponsored Guest Access: Campus faculty and staff hosting visitors who require long-term or wired network access should review the University Policy on Volunteers, submit a Visitor PAF to Human Resources and have the visitor complete the required non-employee forms available on the HR forms page.

Students, faculty and staff can use UDconnect for a temporary connection as they configure devices for secure network access on EduRoam.

EduRoam Access: Visitors from EduRoam institutions with devices already configured to use EduRoam will connect automatically to UD's EduRoam network when they arrive on campus.

Off campus access to the UD network

Most campus resources, like UD Google Apps, Porches and Isidore, are available off-campus by logging into these websites with your UD username and password while connected to the internet (just like on-campus). 

However, a handful of secure campus resources, like Banner INB, and Cognos are protected from off-campus and can only be accessed through use of our campus Virtual Private Network (VPN).
