As new academic year is commenced, a large number of UM members will use the wireless network provided by the University. For the new members, here we would like to introduce UM Wireless LAN service and the methods to connect the Wireless Network.
UM wireless LAN is covering around 80% of campus with more than 6,000 access points. The coverage includes all classrooms, offices, restaurants, dormitories, indoor public areas and 16 outdoor areas. You can refer to UM Outdoor Wireless LAN service for the exact outdoor location. UM Wireless LAN service is provided to different types of users with different accounts and usage policies.
The wireless LAN accounts for all full time staff and students are created with the initial computer accounts by default. UM wireless network service is accessible to all University staff and students. If you have notebook or device with 802.11b/g/a/n/ac wireless module built-in, you can access wireless service with your wireless LAN account.
Currently, ICTO provides 4 types of SSID for connecting to UM Wireless LAN. They are UM_SECURED_WLAN, UM_WLAN_PORTAL, UM_PUBLIC_WIFI, eduroam.
