Changes to Guest Wireless – NUwave-guest

In an ongoing effort to enhance the security of our campus wireless networks, Information Technology Services will be implementing changes to the unsecured wireless network NUwave-guest.

This May ITS will enable registration requirements and a time limit for NUwave-guest access on the Boston campus. Individuals wishing to use the guest wireless network will need to register through a new guest wireless portal page, similar to those used by coffee shops and airports. These changes provide a greater level of security for our campus networks by limiting Internet access to identified guests visiting Northeastern for a certain period of time.

As a reminder, NUwave-guest access is intended for limited guest wireless access only. Northeastern students, faculty, staff and sponsored accounts must use the secure wireless network NUwave.

We will continue to reach out to the the campus community and encourage you to provide feedback on this initiative through myHelp, after logging in with your myNEU credentials. As the launch date approaches, ITS will provide reminders and additional details about these changes.
