There are three different networks accessible while on campus:

  • Roo-Secure is for UA students, faculty, and staff. If you have a myAkron account, this is the network you will connect to.
  • Roo-Guest is for guests visiting the university and for connecting media devices to the network. Note that UA resources such as myAkron or Brightspace are unavailable while connected to this network.
  • eduroam is for students, faculty, and staff who are visiting from other universities of the EDUroam network.

NOTICE: If you have joined the "roo-guest" network before this setup and it keeps connecting to it, find the network under Settings > Wi-Fi, click on the arrow next to the network, and select "Forget This Network." This will drop the profile for "roo-guest" and use your new Roo-Secure one.
