Wireless Coverage

Most buildings at OSU locations have wireless coverage. Outside areas are not necessarily covered for wireless.  Please note that some areas have better signal strength than others, and some areas are more congested than others. If you are having trouble with wireless coverage or performance, please contact the OSU Computer Helpdesk.

OSU Students and Employees

Most buildings now have wireless network access. 

You will need your ONID credentials to login to the wireless network or to register your computer.

Visitors and Conference Guests

Visitors and Conference attendees should use the "Visitor" SSID for wireless Internet access.

If your institution participates in eduRoam, you can connect to the "eduRoam" SSID and login with your home credentials.

Department laptops

Department laptops can be registered in Cyder by the Departmental Computing Administrator (DCA?) and they will automatically have access to the OSU Wireless Network.

Available Wireless Networks

Anyone who has a valid ONID account will have access to OSU wireless. For more information about who has access to the network, see our Getting Connected page.

There are four options available when connecting to the wireless network at OSU:

  • OSU_Secure (recommended)
  • OSU_Access 
  • Visitor
  • Eduroam

OSU_Secure is an encrypted connection and is more secure. OSU_Access is an unsecured connection providing the same resources. Visitor is a network designed for users only on campus for a day or short time period. Eduroam is a network for users from other participating universities to connect to with their university credentials; it can also be used by OSU students and employees who travel to other institutions.
