» Wireless Network

Chapman University has wired and wireless networking capabilities in most areas on campus. This free service allows students, staff, faculty and campus guests to move around campus while maintaining an Internet connection.

Eduroam

"eduroam" is a global partnership of institutions that allows all users to authenticate to WiFi using their University's email address and password.  Once you connect, you will find that your devices will automatically  connect to the eduroam WiFi network at many of the surrounding schools such as UCI and USC.  The reverse is true for visiting faculty and students when they vist Chapman University.

IS&T encourages everyone to begin connecting their devices to eduroam now, as our existing Chapman University wireless network will be retired at the end of summer 2017.  Please note that we will continue to have an open guest wireless network on campus for non-Chapman visitors.

+ - eduroam Benefits

The eduroam network provides similar access as a typical wired computer.  This means you will not need VPN in most situations while connected at Chapman University (Faculty & staff only).  All of your wireless traffic will be encrypted.  There are no Bandwidth Throttles (Previously capped at 25MB/sec). Again, users can be anywhere on campus and experience the same benefits as if they were on a wired computer.

+ - Troubleshooting

Make sure you are entering your FULL Chapman University email address in the username field (e.g. jgarcia@chapman.edu instead of jgarcia).  For those who are using a Windows 7 laptop owned by Chapman University, you may need to connect to the wired network and restart before being able to connect to eduroam for the first time.
