About wireless connections to the Internet at IU

On this page:

The IU Secure wireless network

IU Secure is the wireless network for students, faculty, and staff to access on all campuses. IU Secure utilizes WPA2 Enterprise (Wi-Fi Protected Access) for authentication and encryption.

You'll need to first configure your computer's wireless card so your device can see IU's wireless network; see IU Secure wireless connections: Windows; you'll need to configure your Mac OS computer to use the AirPort card.

See Apple support.

Note: To gain full Internet access for your device on the IU Secure network, you must register the device's MAC address. Before registering your MAC address, your device will be able to connect to IU Secure, but will not receive an IP address that allows a successful Internet connection. For more, see At IU, how do I register my computer or other networked device?

Wireless locations on campus

Wireless access is widely available on IU campuses.

The IU Secure wireless network is available in most IU Bloomington and IUPUI campus residences. You may operate a properly configured, FCC-approved wireless access point (WAP) as an exception to the IT-19 Extending the University Data Network and IT-20 Wireless Networking policies from the University Information Policy Office (UIPO) only if your residence is listed at Wireless Networking: Temporary Exception 2. Once IU Secure is available in your residence, this exception will no longer apply and you will need to remove your WAP from the network.
