For information about the WiFi access and locations provided by ITS—as well as other units on campus—see U-M WiFi locations.
To use a WiFi network provided by ITS, choose one of the following:
MWireless is the most secure WiFi network and should be used by all U-M faculty, staff, students and sponsored guests. Before using the service take a few minutes to configure settings on your WiFi device. See Connecting to MWireless.
MGuest is provided for University of Michigan visitors. It is open and insecure, no encryption is provided by the network. It is a limited network and is treated like a non-UM network. It is available where MWireless is available.
eduroam is a secured WiFi network service that allows students, staff, and faculty to use their home institution's WiFi credentials to access WiFi network services when visiting other eduroam participating institutions—without having to set up a guest account.
Use the automated WiFi Setup tool to configure your device for MWireless and eduroam.
