On-Campus Wi-Fi

Wireless Network Access (Wi-Fi)

On Mac and iOS devices (iPhone, iPad, etc.), simply select MU-WIRELESS from your Wi-Fi menu and enter your Miami UniqueID and password to log in. It provides you with a secure connection and gives you access to the complete range of network services. It may be helpful to prioritize your list of wireless networks and remove any that are not MU-WIRELESS, including MU-GUEST.

On a Windows computer, some setup is required. First, connect to the MU-GUEST network and open a web browser to automatically download a small configuration script that will connect you to MU-WIRELESS from then on. It will also be helpful to remove any networks that are not MU-WIRELESS, including MU-GUEST.

For complete instructions please visit the Knowledge Base at MiamiOH.edu/wireless.

Wireless Access Outside

Miami has worked hard to provide MU-WIRELESS to as many areas of campus as possible, including most outdoor seating and gathering areas, as well as most parking lots on all Ohio campuses.

Wi-Fi for Campus Visitors

Friends and family who visit can use the MU-GUEST network to access the web, or eduroam if they are visiting from a participating eduroam institution. Please note: MU-GUEST provides limited bandwidth and is not designed for academic work. This connection is suitable only for web browsing and is not inherently secure, unlike the MU-WIRELESS network. Students should not use MU-GUEST.


A network supported by more than 600 universities in over 100 countries around the world. Using your Miami email address and password, you can log in to the eduroam network at any campus or location that offers it. Search “eduroam” at MiamiOH.edu/KnowIT for more information.

Configuring mobile and other network devices

You will probably bring multiple devices like smartphones, tablets, and laptops to campus. Miami’s Wi-Fi network can identify and connect most laptops, mobile devices, and other network devices. There are a few exceptions, however, like AppleTV.

For information on how to connect these devices, please visit MiamiOH.edu/wireless.

Other ways to connect

Game consoles, DVRs, and streaming devices (Roku players) will work with Miami’s residence hall wired network and wirelessly on MU-GAMING.

In the dorm rooms, there is one ethernet jack per bed.

Some other devices, including AppleTV and some gaming consoles, may require manual network configuration. Instructions can be found at: MiamiOH.edu/networkregistration.

Note: Xbox One consoles require a wired connection (ethernet).

Wireless Printers

Wireless printers and personal access points are not allowed in the residence halls. They cause disruption to Miami’s wireless service—and you don’t want to be responsible for your neighbor getting kicked off the Wi-Fi. If you have a wireless printer, disable the wireless while on campus. Check your printer’s instructions or support website for how to turn off the wireless, and use a USB cable to connect to your computer.
