The University Library, in cooperation with Campus Information Technologies and Educational Services (CITES), now offers public wireless connectivity for campus visitors. This service is available in the public areas of most Library facilities.
UI Public Wireless is intended for visitors who have no affiliation with the University. With a wireless-enabled laptop, visitors can connect to the Internet using a web browser and can send and receive email using an off-campus email server. Information on getting started is available on the CITES UI Public Wireless website, which also includes a link to all public wireless locations.
Because UI Public Wireless isn't recommended for campus affiliates, members of the University community should continue to use their active NetID or UI guest account to connect to UIUCnet Wireless, the fully-functional campus wireless network.
