Northwestern SSID Retirement Date Moves to February 2

Posted Date: 12 Jan 2022

Effective Date: 12 Jan 2022

The retirement date for the "Northwestern" SSID has been moved from January 19, 2022, to February 2, 2022, due to the scheduling of Wildcat Wellness for the first two weeks of January.

The "Northwestern" SSID will remain visible and provide Wi-Fi connectivity for users while on campus until February 2. After this date, those who attempt to use the "Northwestern" SSID will be redirected to a web page providing self-help instructions for how to set their devices to use "eduroam."

Additional details about this effort are provided on the Northwestern IT Project: Northwestern SSID Retirement web page.

End User Impact

Students, faculty, and staff should connect to the "eduroam" Wi-Fi network. Beginning in August 2021, users with devices connecting via the "Northwestern" SSID  have been receiving regular email notifications reminding them to switch to "eduroam."
