How to Maximize Your Time on Campus
Tuesday, September 1, 2020
Our days at #okstate look different than they have in years past, but we’re committed to helping you set yourself up for success and maximize the time you spend on campus.
Stay Connected — to Wi-Fi, that is.
Some things on campus have changed since you were here last, including our campus Wi-Fi service! We recently switched to eduroam, which gives you access to Wi-Fi at any campus that uses the same service.
- Wireless connectivity is available in most areas of campus. Networks are set up for different groups of users and functions. Students connect to eduroam using their Okstate email address and password.
- Here’s a map of where the Wi-Fi spots are on campus, Cowboys!
