This is a brief description of the most common Wi-Fi Networks (SSIDs) that are seen on-campus. Your department/building may or may not see all of these and you may also see additional ones that are specific to your business. For information on how to connect to the UNC Wi-Fi networks please see Connecting to the UNC Network – Step 3: Wi-Fi (Wireless) Setup.
- UNC-Setup: This network is the first network new devices connect to in order to be setup/configured for the main network “UNC-Secure”.
- UNC-Secure: This is the main Wi-Fi network for official campus users.
- UNC-PSK: This network is setup for devices that are unable to configure UNC-Secure or are not used by a specific individual (i.e. printers, lab computers).
- UNC-Guest: This a limited access network that’s available upon departmental request to allow non-UNC folks (i.e. those without active Onyens) to access the Internet.
- UNC-1: This is the old/original Wi-Fi network which is no longer supported by UNC or networking/computer manufacturers.
