About wireless connections to the Internet at IU

The IU Secure wireless network

IU Secure is the wireless network for students, faculty, and staff to access on all campuses. IU Secure uses WPA2 Enterprise (Wi-Fi Protected Access) for authentication and encryption.

Important:
You no longer need to register wireless devices connecting to the IU Secure network. For details, see Recent changes for connecting to IU Secure.

Wireless for IU visitors

Note:
Indiana University and Purdue University allow researchers and visitors wireless access to their own networks from each campus. For details, see Wireless access at Indiana University and Purdue University.

Wireless networks for departments

For details, see At IU, how can my department set up a wireless network?

Wireless locations on campus

Wireless access is widely available on IU campuses.

The IU Secure wireless network is available in most IU Bloomington and IUPUI campus residences.

IU Bloomington: You may operate a properly configured, FCC-approved wireless access point (WAP) as an exception to the Extending the University Data Network (IT-19) and Wireless Networking (IT-20) policies from the University Information Policy Office (UIPO) only if your residence is listed at Wireless Networking: Temporary Exception 2 (ITE20-02). Once IU Secure is available in your residence, this exception will no longer apply and you will need to remove your WAP from the network. See At IUB, if my campus residence does not yet have IU Secure wireless network access, how do I configure a wireless access point?

IUPUI: IU Secure is not available at Park Place. AT&T provides high-speed wireless access to Park Place residents.
