The University supports an extensive wireless network that covers all building on campus and some areas off-campus as well.

All active students, faculty and staff should access the eduroam signal for laptops, tablets, and mobile devices and the UNR-IOT network if they wish to use IOT devices (Smart TVs, Google Home, Amazon Alexa, gaming consoles, etc.) wirelessly.

Visitors to the University can receive permission to access the UNR-Guest signal.

Although both of these signals allow for unrestricted access to websites, some restrictions to other network resources do apply depending upon your affiliation and the content you are trying to access.

Occasionally, you may experience difficulty connecting your device to the wireless network. Please see our Wireless Troubleshooting guide for common solutions to fix these issues.

eduroam is the wireless signal for all students, faculty, and staff at UNR. Additionally, visitors from other eduroam participating campuses can easily access this signal using the same credentials they use at the institution they are from.

Access to eduroam is available on campus in all locations where there is wi-fi. After you successfully log into eduroam, you will have internet access (some restrictions apply).


The UNR Guest wireless signal is an ideal solution for individuals who are not affiliated with the University, but would like to access the internet from their own wireless device (such as a laptop or smartphone). This wireless signal allows access to all websites, including access to the University's online journals, books, and databases.

The length of time the account is to last determines the method by which the account should be requested. Once you have received an account, accessing the network is simple.


UNR-IOT is a wireless network for student, faculty, and staff use at UNR for devices that are not enterprise capable and cannot be used on eduroam. These include IOT (Internet of Things) devices such as gaming consoles, smart TVs, virtual assistants, etc.

UNR-IOT is currently in a beta release phase and casting to devices on the network is currently not supported nor is communication between two or more devices on the IOT network.
