There are many wireless networks available on campus. The Help Desk provides support for 3 networks (UofT, UTORwin and eduroam).
The UofT wireless network supports wireless b, g and n and does not require a browser-based login each time you connect. For devices capable of wireless n, it is faster and has increased range. If you have problems setting up and/or connecting to this network, please contact us at 416-978-HELP (4357).
The eduroam network at UofT is intended for visiting scholars from other participating eduroam institutions. UofT faculty and students can log in to eduroam at other universities using their UofT credentials.
UTORwin is the old UofT campus wireless network. It continues to be made available in order to support older wireless devices that do not support RADIUS authentication. It also requires that you use a browser each time you connect and it is limited to the wireless b and g standards which have slower connection speeds. We strongly recommend that users switch to using the new "UofT" network for a much more satisfactory experience.
For more details about UofT's wireless networks, including coverage maps, see the UTORcwn web site .
Before you can access the UofT network, you will need to register your UTORid by using the verify tool even if your UTORid is working for other services. There will be a short delay between verifying and being able to access UofT. The following instructions will provide a step-by-step guide to connect your computer. Please note that the device will be configured with the UTORid and password that was used to set it up, and it is therefore not recommended for shared computers or devices.
iOS (iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch)
webOS is not supported - follow the instructions for UTORwin: mobile devices instead if you have a HP Touchpad or Palm Pre/Pre/Veer phone
eduroam is a wireless network system that provides access to wireless Internet when visiting other participating institutions. Support is available from your home institution.
For more general information regarding eduroam (including participating institutions), please visit eduroam.org.
