The AT&T wireless service for Indiana University campus visitors was decommissioned on October 31, 2018. Its replacement, IU Guest wireless, is available for use by visitors, free of charge, on all IU campuses.

Indiana University provides AT&T wireless service to visitors free of charge on all campuses. IU students, faculty, and staff should use IU Secure. AT&T wireless is not available in the IU Bloomington Halls of Residence except for selected common areas; residents should use IU Secure instead.

Details for visitors to campus

This information is for visitors. Students and others with an IU username and passphrase should instead connect to IU Secure; see the important information below.

To connect, make sure your device's wireless networking (Wi-Fi) is turned on, and select the "attwifi" network (SSID). You may need to start your web browser to finish authenticating to AT&T; for complete directions for several different devices, see AT&T's Wireless support.

If you need assistance, contact the Support Center. Visitors and guests at the Indiana Memorial Union (IMU) in Bloomington should contact the hotel front desk at 812-856-6381.

In the IUB libraries, to access subscription library resources, ask at the reference desk. These will not be accessible on the AT&T wireless network.

Important information for students, faculty, and staff

The free AT&T wireless service is intended only for visitors to IU campuses. Members of the IU community should instead use the IU Secure wireless service. Unlike the AT&T service, IU Secure provides wireless encryption; if you use AT&T's wireless, UITS cannot ensure the security of your connection, even to other IU services.

If AT&T Wireless is the provider for your wireless device, the device might automatically attempt to connect to the "attwifi" SSID, rather than to the "IU Secure" SSID. To avoid this, you should configure your mobile device to connect to IU Secure automatically.

UITS does not support devices running Symbian OS (e.g., Nokia smartphones). You may find the instructions published in Nokia Support Discussions useful, but UITS cannot verify their accuracy.
