Available wireless networks

Three different wireless networks are present throughout the UCCS campus, each providing a different level of service.

The names of these three wireless networks are UCCS-Wireless, UCCS-Guest, and eduroam.

  • UCCS-Wireless (secure and encrypted)
    • this is the main wireless network for students, faculty, staff, and guests/visitors who request a temporary username and password to be able to access this network
  • UCCS-Guest (unsecured and not encrypted - but has an option for guests to be able to join our secure network)
    • this is our guest network that offers simple, basic internet access
    • traffic on this network is not encrypted. only use this for basic web browsing. do not send sensitive information over this network.
    • if you are a guest and require a secure/encrypted wireless connection, you should request a temporary username and password so you can join the UCCS-Wireless network
  • Eduroam (secure and encrypted)
    • this network is available for visitors from other eduroam colleges and universities. they can use their home institution's username and password for access to this wireless network.

What network should you connect to?

If you meet this condition  -->I have a UCCS username & password because I am a UCCS student/faculty/staff/etc...I don't have a UCCS username & password and I'm not from an eduroam institute...I am visiting from an eduroam participating institute...
Then connect to this wireless network -->

Connect to UCCS-Wireless

Note - UCCS students, faculty, and staff will use their UCCS username and password

Guests who requested a temporary username and password will use those credentials.

Connect to UCCS-Guest

Note - you will be directed to a captive portal which will present you various guest access options. You will have the option to stay on the unsecure guest network, or you can request a temporary username and password that you can use to switch over to and access our secure wireless network named UCCS-Wireless.

Connect to eduroam using your home institute username and password

Note - your username must include your domain; for example [email protected]
