Two primary wireless networks are used and supported by IT Services, CUPUBLIC and CUSECURE. In the residence halls, the wireless networks are provided and maintained by Technology Services. All other wireless networks should be avoided and could be used to steal your personal information.
CUPUBLIC provides an open, unsecure connection for guests and friends of CU and cannot be used to connect to shared resources or network connected devices. After connecting to CUPUBLIC you must read and accept the Terms of Service before you can proceed.
CUSECURE provides the highest secure, encrypted connection using WPA2 and 802.1x authentication and is required to access any campus shared resource or connected devices. It is available for students, staff, and faculty.
To maintain the security of our wireless network we do not allow personal access points and wireless routers to be used. The use of such devices can be detected and will be disabled if shown to be a threat.
While we extended Wi-Fi to all main campus buildings in 2017, if you require wireless access happen to be in an area of campus not covered, please contact the helpdesk at x5291 to request service for your area. Note we have limited expansion capability.
