PSU offers secure and nonsecure wireless networks on campus. The difference between secure and nonsecure wireless networks is that a secure wireless network will encrypt the internet traffic from your computer to the wireless access point. Older devices and operating systems that are not able to connect to the secure network can connect to the nonsecure network, but OIT recommends always connecting to the secure network if you are able.

There are four Wi-Fi networks on campus to choose from:

  • PSU Secure - The PSU Secure network is the recommended option for anyone with an Odin account, because of its encryption.
  • PSU - The PSU network is for older computers and devices that are not capable of WPA2E security.
  • PSU Guest - The PSU Guest network can be used by individuals who are visiting the campus and will need Wi-Fi access for 24 hours or less. Go to the Guest Wi-Fi page for more information.
  • Eduroam - The eduroam network is a world-wide Wi-Fi authentication service that allows students and faculty to instantly access the internet using their school credentials at participating institutions across the globe. Go to Eduroam for more information about using this network.

Collaborative Life Sciences Building

The PSU Secure network is also available at the Collaborative Life Sciences building (CLSB). However, neither the PSU nor PSU Guest networks are available at this location. Instead, guests and individuals having trouble accessing the PSU Secure network are encouraged to use the OHSU Guest network.
