BGSU recommends a secure wireless network (eduroam) that does not require consistent log on for current faculty, staff and students.

Wireless Guest Access allows users to connect to the BGSU wireless network (BGSU-Guest) for a limited period of time, as a guest. Wireless Guest Access supports university Guests only.

BGSU is also part of the eduroam network. Eduroam allows users from participating academic institutions to securely access the internet at any other eduroam participating locations using their home institution's email address and password. Visitors to our campus from participating organizations can log on to eduroam campus by searching for wireless networks and selecting the available eduroam option.
