Wi-Fi and Network Access

Wireless Network

For a secure connection, use the eduroam Wi-Fi network. The first time you connect, you’ll need to enter your ObieID and password and accept a security certificate.

Just visiting? Scroll to the Visitors page for instructions on how to connect if you don’t have an ObieID.

Wired Network

Most office locations have active wired network ports. Residence hall rooms have wired network ports but these ports are not active by default.

To request that a network port be activated in any location, open a service request using the CIT Tech Support Portal.


VPN stands for Virtual Private Network. A VPN is a secure internet connection using encryption and tunneling protocols to create a safe connection, or tunnel, to a private network.
