Connecting to the Wireless Network

All campus libraries provide wireless access to the campus network. Most campus libraries also offer wired ethernet access to the campus network.

Where is it?

Wireless access is available in throughout all campus libraries, though signal strength may be less reliable in the Crerar and Regenstein bookstacks.

If you think an area in one of our libraries would benefit from an additional wireless access point, please send your suggestion to IT Services.

Connecting: Secure Network (uchicago-secure)

To connect, select the "uchicago-secure" SSID from the list of available networks. Use your CNet ID and password to authenticate and join the network.

Library patrons with CNetIDs are strongly encouraged to use uchicago-secure. All data transferred over the network is encrypted and cannot be seen by other users of the network.

Some devices may need to be configured to work with uchicago-secure. IT Services offers wizards which will do this automatically for some devices.

Connecting: Unencrypted Network (uchicago)

Data transferred on the unencrypted network can possibly be seen by other users. IT Services strongly recommends using the encrypted network for this reason. However, some devices may have problems authenticating.

Users with guest credentials must use the unencrypted network.

To connect, select the "uchicago" SSID from the list of available networks. Use your CNet ID and password or guest credentials to authenticate and join the network.
