UCR Wireless Internet is Getting an Upgrade

Riverside, Ca –

A Better Connection to the World - So You Can Change It

UCR Information Technology Solutions (ITS) is pleased to announce two exciting new updates to our campus wireless infrastructure.

1. New Guest Wireless Network: Designed to make internet access for campus guests easily accessible through a quick self-enrollment process; similar to what you might find at a hotel or coffee shop.
2. Campus Wireless System Upgrades: Upgrades to existing wireless system hardware that will result in an improved overall wireless experience.

 

New Guest Wireless Network

The new Wi-Fi network labeled “UCR-GUEST” is designed to make internet access for campus guests easily accessible through a quick self-enrollment process. Once registered, guests will have access to Wi-Fi for a period of two weeks. If access is needed for more than a 14-day period, guests can re-enroll as many times as needed.

 What do you need to know?

  • On April 22, 2019, Information Technology Solutions will activate the "UCR-GUEST" wireless network. 
  • Locations of availability for the guest network will mirror the existing "ucr-secure" network.
  • Campus guests may select the guest network from the list of available options and self-enroll for internet access.
  • "UCR-GUEST" is not to be used as a replacement for "ucr-secure" for students and employees of the campus.

Campus Wireless System Upgrade:

As part of the wireless upgrade on April 22, noticeable changes to the "ucr-secure" network will include:​​​

  1. Users may be presented a warning about the wireless security certificate the next time they log into "ucr-secure."
  2. Users may be prompted to enter their username and password the next time they login to the network.
