Last year, OIT began changing how campus signed on to the wireless network in order to offer eduroam at UNLV, improve security, and remain in compliance with NSHE policies and federal laws.
If you are using UNLV-Secure or UNLV-Guest, you should set up your device for eduroam now to avoid losing wireless service.
On May 25, we will implement these major changes to campus wireless access:
- UNLV-Secure and UNLV-Guest wireless networks will be removed.
Devices currently using these networks will need to be reconfigured to use a different wireless network.
- The UNLV-Setup network will be renamed to UNLV-WiFi.
Anyone trying to connect to campus wireless will connect here first and then be taken to a sign-on portal. Faculty, staff, and students will follow one link in order to set up eduroam. Campus visitors will use another link to create a username and password that will allow them to connect to WiFi for 3 days. This process can be repeated up to 10 times annually.
- Once campus guests have their username and password, they will join a new network, called UNLV-Sponsored, to use the Internet. Please note that ACE usernames/password will not work on UNLV-Sponsored. Students, faculty, and staff must connect using eduroam.
The eduroam wireless network is available for all students, faculty, and staff. If you have any issues configuring your device, the IT Help Desk is available at 702-895-0777 from 7 a.m. - 11 p.m., 365 days a year, or stop by one of our locations in the student union or CBC-B for hands-on assistance.
Please contact the IT Help Desk for assistance with devices that are not capable of connecting to eduroam or if you have frequent campus guests that need extended access to campus Wi-Fi.
We appreciate your patience as we implement these changes.
