Northwestern Campus Wireless Network

The campus wireless network at Northwestern uses WPA2-Enterprise authentication to provide a high level of data security. Most computers, tablets, and smartphones are compatible with this type of authentication.

Select eduroam from the list of available wireless networks. Your wireless device should connect automatically. Then, enter your NetID@northwestern.edu and your NetID password when prompted. 

When changing your NetID password, remember to update your wireless settings to use the new password. For more detailed instructions, please consult the Northwestern Knowledge Base: Wireless.

Devices, including wireless printers, game systems, and TVs (e.g. Apple TV) are not generally compatible with the eduroam wireless network. Register your device with the Device-Northwestern network.
