Complimentary Wi-Fi Service for Visitors to Be Available Spring Quarter

Beginning spring quarter, complimentary Wi-Fi services will be available on campus for use by the general public.

The university has partnered with AT&T to provide complimentary Wi-Fi hotspots on Ohio State's Columbus campus. The Wi-Fi hotspots will allow wireless access for visitors. The service will be free to use; open (no log in credentials will be required) and unsecured (no encryption).

Faculty, staff, and students should continue to use the secured service provided (osuwireless).

The visitor Wi-Fi service will be available in all OSU Wireless locations except residence halls and Metro High School. To view the OSU Wireless coverage map, visit Future plans include extending the service to regional campuses.

Access details for the new visitor Wi-Fi service will be communicated to the campus community beginning March 23.
