FSUWIN Wi-Fi network changes to FSUGuest

Wednesday 08/12/2015

Florida State University is streamlining its wireless networks. As of August 17, the FSUWIN Wi-Fi network has been retired, and a new network, FSUGuest, has taken its place. The renaming creates a clear distinction between FSUSecure—the university’s protected Wi-Fi network for students, faculty and staff—and FSUGuest—the university’s public network for campus visitors.

FSUSecure is the recommended Wi-Fi network for students, faculty and staff. Access to the network requires an FSUID, making it the university’s safest, most secure connection. FSUSecure also has automatic login, which means a person only has to sign in once and can stay connected as they roam around campus. Recent enhancements to the FSUSecure network have expanded and strengthened its coverage around campus and in key gathering areas such as Landis Green.

Visitors to Florida State University’s main campus can access free, public Wi-Fi using the FSUGuest network. Guest Wi-Fi makes it easy for visiting researchers, media, family and other guests to quickly start browsing the Web. To connect, visitors simply choose FSUGuest from the list of available networks, open a Web browser, click the Guest Registration button, and they are directed to a guest registration page. Upon registration, guest Wi-Fi is available immediately, and access is valid for one day—a minimum of 24 hours. The service works for anyone with a U.S. cellphone number on a supported carrier and is available on Florida State University’s main campus.

One other Wi-Fi network is also available for use on the main campus. Eduroam is a free, secure network available to campus visitors from participating eduroam institutions, including researchers and international students.
