Your mobile device at IU

On this page:


Overview

Since configuring your device will require your IU passphrase, you must perform these steps yourself. Do not provide your passphrase to a sales or service representative. Doing so is a violation of your Acceptable Use Agreement; see Your responsibilities as a computer user at IU.

For help, contact your campus Support Center.

Email

Find your IU email account type below, and then the instructions for your device's operating system.

Important:
As of May 17, 2022, Exchange Online is the official university email for all IU students, although it may take a few days for all your Gmail items to migrate. For more, see About changes to student email at IU. Creation of new Gmail at IU accounts ended on March 12, 2022.

Wireless on campus

Note:
eduroam is replacing IU Secure as the default wireless network for students, faculty, staff, and affiliates on all IU campuses. As of May 26, 2021, IU Secure is no longer available in the residence halls, and will fully retire in the near future. All new wireless connections should use eduroam; see Connect to eduroam.

Security

Because your device will have access to personal information, you should make an effort to secure it and the data it holds. If your device will be accessing IU institutional data, proper security is necessary. For guidelines and detailed instructions, see Protect data on your mobile device.

Apps to download

UITS recommends that students, faculty, and staff use the following apps with tablets and smartphones:
