Wireless Tips

The University of San Diego's wireless network is a large, robust system that provides Internet access virtually everywhere on campus.

The University of San Diego has a large, robust wireless network for our students, staff/faculty, alumni and guests. We have collected together tutorials and resources to help you get connected.

Tips before you start

  • Start early! Try connecting to the wireless before you need it, in case you experience any problems. Don't wait until 5 minutes before a presentation
  • Are you bringing a guest to campus? Send the instructions before they arrive and supply them with contact information in case they have trouble.
  • Ask for help if necessary. The ITS Help Desk is here to help with connection problems, signal strength, and technical education.
  • Are you new to campus, or just setting up a computer for the first time? This tutorial will show you how to get connected to our 'eduroam' network, which allows your computer to automatically connect without requiring a login.

Guests to USD

  • Guests can create their own account on our 'usdguest' network free of charge. When you arrive, connect your computer to the 'usdguest' network and open a web browser (you will then be redirected to a registration page). You can view step-by-step instructions below.

Vendors at USD

  • Vendors and long term visitors here on behalf of USD have a few different options for wireless. If you are here for a short period of time (less than a month), it is usually best for you to log onto the 'usdguest' wireless account. If you are here for longer, or need access to other USD systems, your sponsor department can request with HR to create a non-employee ID number and allow an account to be created for a designated non-employee in order to use Eduroam.
