Wireless Network and Connectivity

As a member of the university community, you have access to internal and external resources for securely connecting to the university network. OIT supports both wi-fi and cellular coverage on campus. With your laptop, tablet, or mobile device you can access the Secure Wireless Network (labeled CU-Anschutz) or Guest Wireless Network (CU Anschutz Guest) while on campus or at our off-campus locations. Both networks will require a certificate acceptance however, for access to the Secure Wireless Network you must use your university credentials - username and password.


Our network team has been completing updates and upgrades across the CU Anschutz campus. Make sure you are connected to the correct SSID for Wi-Fi: CU-Anschutz

If you continue having connection issues, please contact the OIT Service Desk for troubleshooting assistance. As a reminder, if you are not on campus and require access to university resources, use the virtual private network (VPN) and remote desktop access options.
