UMD Wireless Network Access

Wireless service is available throughout most of the UMD main campus, including most classrooms, lecture halls, and study areas (library, coffee shop, Kirby Plaza), and residence halls (see: ResNet for details).

There are two separate wireless services available on campus:


Can I put my own wireless access point on the network?

No. Wireless hubs must be carefully deployed so that they do not interfere with one another. Additionally, University standards require that wireless networking hubs have security and authentication built into them to ensure that unauthorized persons will not be able to gain access to the University network. Because of these and other issues, clients may not install wireless access points (or other network equipment) on the University network. This includes offices and the residence halls. For details, see: Policy on Use of the UMD Network.
