Accessing the Campus Wireless Network

Below is a list of available wireless connections across campus. If you need assistance, please stop by with your laptop at IT Central, 108 Old Main. The preferred network connection is "eduroam".

Encrypted connections (Preferred as it is more secure)

  • eduroam - EDUROAM (education roaming) is a secured wireless network service that allows students, staff, and faculty to use their home institution's wireless credentials to access wireless network services, when visiting other EDUROAM participating institutions, without having to set up a guest account.

    To get connected login with your campus connection userID + @minotstateu.edu (Example: student.name@minotstateu.edu) and your campus password. Note that the @minotstateu.edu is not an email address, it is telling the system you are a minot state staff/faculty/student. You may recieve a warning about a certificate, just choose connect anyways as it cannot verify until an internet connection is available. (For Android devices be sure to set "EAP method" to PEAP and the "Phase 2 authentication" to MSCHAPV2)

    If you have problems connecting you may bring your device to Old Main 108 for setup.

    To see a map of participating institutions visit the Eduroam-US website.
