This guide is intended to help connect personal computers running Windows 10 onto the campus wireless network. This Quicknote is for the benefit of the affiliates and guests of the University of
Michigan-Flint. If you are attempting to connect University-owned domain machines, please consult the ITS Helpdesk in 206 MSB for assistance.
To connect to the campus wireless network, you will need to know your UM-Flint email address, (email@example.com) and the current account password. The instructions in this guide are designed specifically for Windows 10.
What are all these networks?
The network (SSID) eduroam is a secure, worldwide roaming access service developed for the international research and education community. This allows students, researchers, and staff from participating institutions to obtain a more secure, faster Internet connectivity across campus and when visiting other participating institutions.
Setup your Wireless
This network is designed to automatically configure the wireless settings of personally-owned laptops (not phones or tablets) to connect to eduroam. Please do not use this utility if your laptop is owned by the university. If you are having difficulty connecting to eduroam with a university-provided laptop please contact the helpdesk.
Visitors to our campus that do not participate or are unfamiliar with eduroam can gain one day access to Internet Wi-Fi (not local UM-Flint resources such as printers). This is also the connection that devices that cannot support connecting to eduroam will utilize such as gaming consoles (Xbox, PlayStation, Wii), video/informational streaming devices (Roku, Amazon Echo/DOT/Fire sticks) and Smart TV’s. These devices must be registered before connecting to MGuest, for help on how to register these devices please click here.
