Wireless Access


Campus Users

The Division of Information Technology provides three main wireless networks for users with a university ID and password, including:

  • umd-secure
  • umd

Umd-secure is the recommended network, as it provides the most data security, while umd is the default network.

New: Automatically set up a Wi-Fi connection to umd-secure.

Optionally, for general wireless network access, you may log on to umd by opening any web browser and navigating to any URL. Your browser will redirect you to the umd wireless authentication login page, where you can enter your directory ID and password

For additional help, please see the Division of Information Technology's Connecting to the Wireless Network page for instructions.

Guest Users

In order for non-campus affiliated users to access the umd wireless network, a University of Maryland faculty or staff member must request a guest account using the Guest Wireless Access Tool. A temporary directory ID and password will be issued for guests to login. The Guest Wireless Access Tool will allow faculty and staff to sponsor up to four guest accounts, which are valid for up to 30 days.
