Configuring Wireless Devices

Connecting to Wireless on Campus and Residence Halls

Let’s start by registering your devices and connecting you to UNH's wireless.

  1. Connect to the UNH-Open wireless network.
  2. Open a web browser and go to Follow the onscreen instructions* to register and connect to eduroam wireless.
    * Parents and guests, choose the Guest registration.

If multiple people use your computer via separate user accounts, please contact UNH IT at to request additional information on configuring a multiple-user computer.

If you encounter difficulties configuring your device for the UNH Wireless Network, please see the Wifi FAQ. If you continue to experience difficulties, please contact the UNH IT Service Desk at 603-862-4242 or submit a ticket on the"Report An Issue" web form .

Did you know?

Network registration is required for all networks.

Guest access is available to both the eduroam and UNH-Open SSIDs. Click here for more information about guest eduroam access.

Gaming Consoles should join the UNH-Open network within the residence halls, which is specifically designed to accommodate their needs as much as possible in an enterprise network environment. Please see Gaming on the UNH Network for more information.

UNH IT provides wireless access to students, faculty, staff, and guests in all academic buildings and residence halls. There are also areas outside that are covered, such as the Great Lawn in front of Thompson Hall.

UNH offers two primary wireless networks:

  • The UNH-Open network is an unsecured network meant primarily to allow users to reach the initial information and configuration page. The UNH-Open network allows devices to remain on-line for 24 hours before they are again directed to the information and configuration page. Access from the UNH-Open network is limited to web traffic (http & https) and VPN traffic.
  • The eduroam network offers UNH community members an encrypted connection option across institutions participating in eduroam. Click here for more information.

Devices incapable of being configured for eduroam can have an exemption requested, allowing them to remain on the UNH-Open network. This is only necessary for devices the network has identified as computers or 'smart devices' like tablets and phones.
