Guests of the University who need access to NYURoam Wireless can make special arrangements to access NYURoam via an nyuguest account. For more information, see Other Ways of Connecting to NYURoam: nyuguest.
System & Security Requirements
You can access NYURoam using:
- A computer running Windows XP, Vista, 7, or 8, or Mac OS X
- A wireless-enabled mobile device (iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, BlackBerry, Android)
To successfully log on to NYURoam, your computer or mobile device must:
- Support either the WPA2 Enterprise security standard. If your computer does not support WPA2 Enterprise, you can use alternative configuration methods.
- Have a wireless adapter (also called a Network Interface Card) that supports the IEEE 802.11 a, g, and/or n standards.
The first time you attempt to authenticate onto NYURoam's "nyu" network, you will be presented with a dialog box asking you to validate an InCommon security certificate. Accept the new certificate and log on. No further action is necessary, and you will not need to validate the certificate again.
