Why get an ONID account?

OSU Access Wireless portal has returned

The login page for the OSU Access wireless network has returned. Information about that can be found here.

OSU Access is an unsecured/unencrypted wireless network. OSU IT staff recommend you use the Eduroam or OSU Secure wireless networks.

Reasons why you want to set up your ONID account as soon as you can.


  • Many professors use class email lists to contact students. Without an ONID email account, you may be missing important information.
  • In order to access Blackboard, students and professors must have a valid ONID account.
  • Using on-campus computers and the campus wireless networks requires a valid ONID account.
  • ONID accounts have access to Google Apps for OSU.
