Eduroam is the primary secure network available throughout campus, in campus residence halls and at University Village. Students must connect to eduroam in order to have a secure connection to the campus network which allows the use of campus resources (e.g. digital library resources).
If you are connecting to eduroam for the first (or the first time in a while), see here for step-by-step instructions.
In addition, eduroam(link is external) provides network access at over 2,400 participating institutions in the US and thousands more world-wide. When visiting a participating institution, UC Berkeley students who have configured their device to use eduroam can automatically connect to that institution's network.
Berkeley-IoT (Internet of Things)
While eduroam is the network of choice for phones, laptops, tablets, and desktops, Berkeley-IoT is the eduroam equivalent Wi-Fi network for devices that do not support the username and password-based authentication in use by eduroam.
This network will be used most commonly by residents in campus housing to connect entertainment devices (e.g. smart TVs, streaming hubs, and gaming consoles). See below for more information about options in our various campus housing locations.
If you are connecting to Berkeley-IoT for the first (or the first time in a while), visit the Wi-Fi services webpage for step-by-step instructions.
Berkeley-Visitor provides basic internet access for visitors to campus who do not have a CalNet ID; it is not recommended for Cal students to rely upon. Some campus resources may not be accessible while connected with Berkeley-Visitor.
*Please note that devices that require inter-device communication (e.g. wireless printers, network attached storage, voice-activated assistants) are NOT supported by any of our on-campus Wi-fi networks.
