Wireless Access for UWSP Guests

The guest wireless network is available in all academic and administrative buildings. Every summer it is also available in the residence halls. This is an open, unsecure network that provides limited access to UWSP resources. UWSP services such as email.uwsp.edu, myPoint.uwsp.edu, and myfiles.uwsp.edu are not available on this network.

To gain access to the guest wireless network, connect your device to the network SSID called "UWSP_Unsecure_Guest", open your web browser, and register by entering a valid email address.

This is a secure network and allows visitors from other colleges and universities to connect to it with the credentials of their home institution, provided that their institution also participates in eduroam. The SSID for this wireless network is labeled "eduroam". For additional information on the eduroam federation visit eduroam.org.
