Internet and WiFi

HSU students and employees can connect their private and HSU laptops and smartphones to a free and secure wireless network called eduroam anywhere on campus by using their HSU user name and password. eduroam allows students, researchers and staff from participating institutions to access the internet across campus and when visiting other participating institutions by simply opening their laptop or other mobile device.

All devices need to be running a currently supported operating system, and laptops must have anti-virus software with up-to-date definitions installed to connect to eduroam. If you are having problems connecting to eduroam, read the instruction on getting connected.

HSU visitors:

  • Can use the self-service guest wireless network by selecting HSUGuest option on their device when they are on campus, registering with their email address and cell number, and receiving their password via text message.

  • Can request that their campus host arranges access to campus computers in unrestricted computer labs and/or smart classrooms. The sponsoring department should create a New User Guest Account by going to Account Settings > Requests > Request Access > Create NewUser in their myhumboldt portal.
  • Visitors from other academic institutions with an eduroam account can access the wireless network directly via the eduroam option on their device. This device must be running a currently supported operating system, and laptops must have anti-virus with up-to-date definitions installed in order to connect to eduroam.
