Description

There are many wireless networks available on campus. The Help Desk provides support for 2 networks (UofTand 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. U of T faculty and students can log in to eduroam at other universities using their UofT credentials.
