Connect to utexas Wi-Fi Network

Current students, faculty, staff, and official visitors have access to the wireless network on campus (SSID: utexas). 

To connect to utexas, your device must support WPA2 and 802.1x authentication (aka. "WPA2 Enterprise").

Most modern operating systems (Windows, macOS, Linux, Android, iOS) are able to automatically detect the settings to connect to the network. Bring up the list of Wi-Fi networks on your device, select utexas, and log in using your UT EID when prompted.  If you encounter compatibility problems with utexas, try utexas-iot (KB0017215).

If your device is unable to detect the settings, you may need to manually add the network. The configuration parameters are:

  • SSID: utexas
  • Encryption: WPA2-Enterprise
  • EAP method: PEAP or TTLS
  • EAP Phase 2 authentication: MSCHAPv2
  • Certificate: Use system certificate
  • Domain:
  • Outer/Anonymous Identity: "anonymous"
  • Identity: Your UT EID
  • Password: Your UT EID Password

If you experience trouble connecting to utexas wireless or if a configuration is not available for your device, contact the UT Service Desk.
