In-building wireless (WiFi) networks allow faculty, staff, students, sponsored affiliates, and guests to communicate through wireless local area networks on laptops, tablets, cellular phones, and other devices.
We provide three wireless networks on the Ann Arbor campus. Refer to our Getting Started page for more instructions.
- MWireless is designed for students, faculty, sponsored affiliates, and staff with a valid uniqname and password. It provides the most secure network, using strong encryption. Members of the campus community are strongly urged to use MWireless when working on campus. The WiFi Setup Tool tool can assist you with configuring your device.
- eduroam is an alternate, secure WiFi network designed for students, faculty and staff. It is available at U-M and other universities and colleges worldwide and acts as one large, world-wide, wireless hotspot. University employees need to configure eduroam prior to traveling. The WiFi Setup Tool tool can assist with configuring your device. Visitors should contact their home institution’s service center for eduroam support.
- MGuest is a limited WiFi network for university guests. Students, faculty, and staff are encouraged not to use MGuest as their primary network, as it is less secure and speed-limited. Some applications and resources may not work on this network. MGuest requires that guests enter their email address and agree to the university’s terms of service.
The current WiFi certificate for MWireless and eduroam expired in May 2016. You may be prompted to accept a new wireless certificate on your computer, tablet, cellular phone, or other device when you login to campus networks if you have been away for the summer.
