Anyone using the Company wireless network is forewarned that there can be no expectation of privacy when using the wireless network. Users assume all associated risks and agree to hold harmless the Company and its employees for any personal information (e.g. credit card) that is compromised, or for any damage caused to users’ hardware or software due to electric surges, security issues or consequences caused by viruses or hacking. All wireless access users should have up-to-date virus protection on their personal laptop computers or wireless devices, as well as staying up-to-date with applicable OS security patches.

Eduroam Wireless Network

PHSU is implementing a new wireless service called eduroam. With hundreds of thousands of wireless access points sharing a common identifier, eduroam acts as one large, worldwide wireless hotspot. The eduroam network allows travelers from one academic institution to gain network access at another institution with minimal configuration changes and no need for explicit access approval. This benefits visiting faculty and those traveling for conferences and collaborative work, study abroad students, and visitors. PHSUWiFi remains the best way for current PHSU faculty, staff, and students to connect to wireless while on PHSU’s campus. Please send questions or feedback regarding eduroam to the IT Help Desk. itsupport@psm.edu
Connecting to eduroam
When on a campus that supports the eduroam network, simply select “eduroam” in your list of available wireless networks and connect using your PHSU email address and password.
