"OHIO University" wi-fi to be replaced on May 12, 2019 with "eduroam"

At 5:00 am on May 12, 2019, OIT will finish retiring the OHIO University wi-fi network in favor of eduroam.  

What to expect 

This change should have no effect for most individuals. As of May 8, 2019, our records show fewer than 40 people still connecting to the OHIO University wi-fi. We will contact those individuals directly to help them switch to eduroam.  

On the odd chance that one of your devices loses wi-fi access after May 12, you can fix it by opening your wi-fi settings and choosing eduroam. When prompted to login, use your full @ohio.edu email address and your OHIO password

Reasons for the change

We are switching to eduroam to provide better performance and to facilitate wi-fi access for students, faculty and staff when traveling. Moving to a single network name will let us improve coverage and speed. Also, eduroam offers free wi-fi at participating institutions worldwide. Once you have connected to eduroam on an OHIO campus, your device will connect on other eduroam member university campuses, too.
