General How-to Connect

Below is a very quick and general how-to for connecting to wireless on campus. This should work for most computers and smart-phones. For more detailed information about your specific device type, visit the OS Specific How-To's page.

 

How-To Connect To Wireless

If you have a UCCS username & password (because you are faculty, staff, student, etc)

On your device connect to the UCCS-Wireless wireless network. When prompted for your credentials you will enter your UCCS username and password. Visit our KB article for specific step-by-step instructions on connecting to UCCS-Wireless.

If you are a guest visiting campus and are not from an institute that participates in eduroam

On your device, connect to the UCCS-Guest wireless network. You should be presented a web page with various guest options.

Option 1: Single Click Access (unsecure access) - this option gives you immediate internet access over a non-secure network - like free wi-fi at a coffee shop. This is an open network (not encrypted) and you should not be sending or receiving any sensitive information. If you would like a secure wireless connect, use option #2 below. For more help with this option visit our KB page.

Option 2: Request a Guest Account (secure access option) - this option gives you the ability to request a temporary username and password that you can use to then connect to our secure and encrypted wireless network (UCCS-Wireless). After filling out a short form, we will email and txt you your temporary username and password. For more help with this option visit our KB page.

If you do not have a UCCS username and password but you are from an institution participating in eduroam

On your device connect to the eduroam network. When prompted for your credentials you will enter your home institution username and password. Be sure your username includes the domain (exmp: username@domain.edu). Visit our KB article for specific step-by-step instructions on connecting to eduroam.
