Hours Subject to Change, Check Back Often!

Wifi at UNL is changing!

Unl-air, unl-air-e and unl-guest have gone away.

The new standard wifi networks are now

Eduroam for computers and phones.

Nu-connect for onboarding and IOT devices. (TVs, gameboxes, etc.)

Nu-guest for non Faculty/Staff/Students.

These will be the same for the 4 main campuses, UNL, UNK, UNO and the Med Center.

The 2 easiest ways to connect a computer or phone:

1) If you have connection to internet through 3G or Verizon or however, go to Look for the button that says "Eduroam setup". It should recognize what device you're using.

Click the device button, on the next page, download the 'NU-eduroam-WiFi configuration profile'.

Once that's downloaded, open or run that and step through the process. It will ask for your login and password. The login is your MyUNL/Canvas username and just for the Eduroam login you will need to add the domain. for UNL students. Then the password is just your regular Canvas password.

Note: for iphones, the initial connection to Eduroam often bounces a couple of times, but should settle down and stay connected shortly. For iPhones and Macs, it's often necessary to 'forget' any other local Wifi networks you nay have connected to, even momentarily.

2) If you have no data plan or other connection, connect your phone or laptop to Nu-connect. You should be sent to a setup page, if not you may need to type a web address into the address bar of your browser. Once you get to the setup page, click the 'Faculty/Staff/Student' button and that shoud start the same process as above. Remember to 'forget' Nu-connect once you get connected to Eduroam if you have an iPhone or Mac.
