What is eduroam?

MSU uses the eduroam service for wireless internet connectivity across campus. The eduroam (education roaming) service, developed for the international research and education community, is a secure, worldwide wireless network access system that allows students, faculty, and staff from participating institutions to access the Internet when visiting other participating institutions. With eduroam, you can connect to the network at other member institutions using your MSU credentials (netid@msstate.edu & NetPassword). Wireless network connectivity is available across the majority of campus buildings and many outdoor areas.

 

How do I connect?

All currently enrolled students and active employees should be able to log in and use the eduroam network on their computers, smartphones, and tablets using their netid@msstate.edu email address and NetPassword. See below for device-specific instructions.

If you're still having issues connecting and need assistance, please Contact the ITS Service Desk or put in a Request assistance with getting your devices set up on wireless ticket.

 

What if I am not an enrolled student or active employee?

ITS provides a guest wireless connection for visitors and guests on campus with the msuguest network. This is a restricted network and does not have access to all campus resources. This password is changed daily and is only available for full-time employees and other specific users (look up the current password at its.msstate.edu/msuguest). The password is also available at the Guest Services desk at the Colvard Student Union and the coffee shop at Barnes and Noble.

 

What if my device does not support connecting to eduroam?

For devices that are unable to use the eduroam network, ITS provides the msu3 network. This would include game consoles (Playstation, Xbox, Nintendo systems), smart speaker systems (Amazon Alexa), e-Readers (some Kindles, Nook), and smart TVs/streaming devices (AppleTV, Roku, Amazon Firestick, etc.).  Please note that your mobile device will need to be on the same network (msu3) in order to communicate with the other device. Also, not all devices are guaranteed to work with this network, but most do. See the article below for instructions on connecting to msu3.
