To connect to the wireless network on campus:
CU-Boulder's wireless service is called UCB Wireless.

The CU-Boulder campus network registration service is being upgraded. The rollout of the new network registration process is happening in phases across the campus on both the wired and wireless networks. Learn more on the Network Registration project page.
CU-Boulder's wireless network can be identified by the SSID (or Network Name) "UCB Wireless." OIT recommends that you choose UCB Wireless as your wireless network when you are on campus.
