Campus Wireless Access
The University of Utah provides two campus wireless networks: UConnect, a secure network for students, faculty, and staff; and UGuest, an unsecured network for visitors.
In addition, the University of Utah is part of the eduroam network, and offers secure wireless access to visitors from other participating institutions.
The UConnect Setup Wizard is the best way to configure your device to connect to the network; instructions are also available for setting up your device manually. For help connecting to the wireless network, contact the Campus Help Desk at (801) 581-4000, opt. 1.

Download the Wizard
If you experience difficulties with ActiveX or Java while using the Setup Wizard, you may want to try downloading the zip file and running the Wizard directly from your device. (Note: This option requires you to have admin privileges on your device.)
- Download the file (http://setup.utah.edu/UConnect.zip), and save it to a location on your device.
- Extract the contents.
- Double-click on "XpressConnect.exe" (on Windows) or click "XpressConnect" (on Mac) to run the Setup Wizard.
If you do not have admin privileges, are running as a restricted or standard user, or have Internet security programs that block Java applications or Java scripts, you will need to configure your device manually. If you need assistance, please contact the Campus Help Desk at 801-581-4000, opt. 1.
UConnect Manual Configuration Options
While the Setup Wizard is the easiest way to configure your device, you may also set up your wireless connection manually, using the following settings:
SSID/Network Name = UConnect
