Connect to Wireless Network

Only students enrolled in the current semester, current employees, and those with an active guest or sponsored account can access the campus WIFI network.

  1. From your device's WIFI settings, select eduroam from the list of available networks.
  2. In the username field, enter your full UTRGV email address and then enter your password.
  3. If prompted, accept any security or certificate notices.

If you have difficulty connecting, check other available fields to ensure they have the proper settings:

  • Network SSID: eduroam
  • Security: 802.1x Enterprise
  • EAP method: PEAP
  • Phase 2 authentication: MSCHAPV2
  • Identity: Enter your full UTRGV email address.
  • Anonymous identity:
      iPhone:  Leave blank.
      Android:  Enter your UTRGV email address
  • CA Certified:  For Android version 8 and above, select Do Not Validate.
  • Password: Enter your UTRGV password.

If your device has additional fields to fill, you may leave them blank.

Note that whenever your UTRGV password is changed, you will need to update your WIFI connection settings with your new password, or "forget" the eduroam network and reconnect with your new password.

Due to the many models and operating systems of mobile devices, in-person help may be needed.  Please view this contact information
