DePaul University WiFi


At DePaul, Eduroam is our primary wireless network. Students, faculty, staff, alumni, and "Friends of DePaul" have access to this service. For setup of the Eduroam WiFi network click the link below (Setup your WiFi) to be directed to the installer page where it will run you through configuration steps.

Guest WiFi Network Access

Guest users can follow these instructions to register for either sponsored guest access or conference attendee access.

  • Sponsored guest WiFi setup instructions: Faculty and staff members may sponsor individual guests visiting campus. The visitor will need to provide the email address of the faculty or staff sponsor.
  • Conference attendee WiFi setup instructions: Conference attendees are able to use the depaul-guest wireless network for the duration of the conference. Please ask your conference coordinator for login information.

Long-term Guests (i.e. Friends of DePaul)

"Friends of DePaul" accounts provide access to DePaul's WiFi network. If you are a longer-term guest of DePaul (i.e. a volunteer, temp worker, consultant, intern, contract worker, etc.) or other guest of DePaul, and your affiliation with DePaul requires that you have a DePaul email account or access to our network, please ask your sponsor to request a "Friends of DePaul" account.

Legacy and Gaming Devices

Some older devices may not support 802.1x authentication and therefore will be unable to connect to the Eduroam wireless network. You should use the wireless network dpupsk for these devices. In order to connect to this network please follow the steps below.  We highly recommend connecting gaming consoles to the network via the ethernet port(s) available in the residence hall rooms for the best experience.

Contact the Help Desk or call 312-362-8765 to obtain assistance setting up your device.
