The Office of the Chief Information Officer is excited to announce a new wireless network, “WiFi@OSU”. This unsecured network is to be used by visitors of The Ohio State University such as family members, friends, prospective students and guests.

Additionally, the “WiFi@OSU” network is available for current Ohio State students, faculty and staff as a way to configure their computers and mobile devices to use the encrypted “osuwireless” network. After connecting to “WiFi@OSU” and opening a browser window, users will be directed to a network access page that will assist in the configuration process. This will prove to be especially helpful following a password change.

How to Connect as a Guest

  • Connect to "WiFi@OSU" service set identifier (SSID) from a Wi-Fi enabled device
  • Launch your device's web browser
  • Agree to the "Acceptable Use" policy
  • Click "Login"

Please be aware that “WiFi@OSU” is not to be used as a replacement for “osuwireless”. Students, faculty and staff should use “osuwireless” once configured, as it is a secure network.

WiFi@OSU” is now available and is deployed across all Ohio State campuses. Due to the addition of this new network, the “attwifi” and “osuguest” networks will be retiring on April 15, 2014.

Please contact the ITS Helpdesk if you have any questions.
