Getting Started


WiFi Connectivity

eduroam network

eduroam serves as the main Wi-Fi network for University of Nebraska students, faculty, and staff, offering WiFi access across the entire campus. This network is set up for seamless use on phones, tablets, laptops, and desktop computers. However, for other devices, such as IoT devices, they should be connected to the NU-IoT network instead. Instructions on how to connect to eduroam

NU-IoT network

Internet of Things (IoT) is accessible for devices that cannot utilize an Ethernet connection and are not eligible for eduroam. These devices include game consoles, streaming devices, TVs, and other smart devices. Each device must be individually registered, and they will each have their unique WiFi password.

  • How to register a device to NU-IoT

    • You will need to find the wireless MAC address for your device in order to set it up for NU-IoT network. This can be found in your device's network settings.

      • example: 00-B0-D0-63-C2-26

    • Once you have that, register your IoT Device

    • This will register your device to the network and give you the password for that device to connect to NU-IoT. 

IoT registration lasts for one year before needing to be renewed. You can manage and edit your registered devices whenever necessary.


Wired Connectivity

Data ports in Residence Hall rooms are active by default, however if you notice that you are not receiving a connection, please submit a support request. Ethernet cables are available for free at your Residence Hall front desk.

Additional Information

Please refrain from bringing any routers (wireless or wired), hubs, or switches into the residence halls. These devices can cause conflicts on the University Network and may result in your network connection being deactivated. This policy is enforced by Information Services Networking to safeguard the network's integrity. Your cooperation in adhering to this policy is vital.
