Wireless Access

On This Page:

Description


There are many wireless networks available on campus. The Help Desk provides support for 2 networks (UofT 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.

For more details about UofT's wireless networks, including coverage maps, see the UTORcwn web site .

Note: We recommend that UofT faculty, staff and students set up and test their computers prior to travelling to a partner institution. Once it is set up, you will have wireless access to any eduroam-enabled institution in the world. While at UofT, you should be using UofT's wireless network (UofT).
