How do I connect to the UT wireless network?

Where can I access the wireless network?

To connect to UT's wireless network, you must be in the range of the wireless signal. Most of the academic and administrative buildings, as well as many other public areas of campus, are covered by wireless.

How do I connect to the wireless network?

Step 1 - Connect to the network

ut-open: The unsecured network available to faculty, staff, students, and visitors.  To connect to ut-open, select the network from the list of available networks on your device and proceed to the registration page.

eduroam: The secure network available to faculty, staff, and students. In addition to wireless access at UT, faculty, staff, and students will be able to obtain Internet connectivity when visiting other participating Eduroam institutions.

Step 2 - Register your device

To connect to the Internet, you must register your device on UT's network after configuring your wireless connection. Once connected to the wireless network, your device may automatically open a browser pop-up with the network registration screen. After registration, turn your wi-fi off and back on, or reboot your device to connect.

If you do not see the registration pop-up, connect to wireless, then open your device's web browser and navigate to another site such as google.com. You will be automatically redirected to the registration page - http://support.utk.edu/. If you are not directed to the registration page, you can enter the URL http://support.utk.edu manually. Log in and follow the instructions to register. 

For devices that do not have web browsers (such as Microsoft Edge, Safari, Firefox, or Chrome) a manual registration is necessary. The most common type of device to need this would be a gaming console.  See the Gaming Devices page for more information on how to register these devices.
