Logging on to the UO Secure wireless network


The purpose of this article is to explain the methods in which users can use wireless internet access on the University of Oregon campus. Wireless internet access on campus typically requires users to sign-in with their DuckID and password. Here is the method of logging on to the UO Wireless or UO Secure network using a desktop or laptop computer:

UO Wireless

When logging-in to this network, select the uowireless network from your network configuration settings page. Open a window in your web browser and you will be directed to a page that requires your DuckID and password. Upon authentication, you will be redirected to the University’s home page.

Upon restarting or shutting down the computer, users will have to re-authenticate to gain access.

UO Secure / Eduroam

Once online, you can choose to authenticate for up to six months by selecting the UO Secure network and going through a few more steps (This same process will work with Eduroam users but by selecting the Eduroam network):

  1. In the Windows System Tray or the macOS Network System Preferences, select the network labeled UO WiFi Setup
  2. A window in your default web browser will load with a prompt to install the UO Secure certificate then click Download to proceed.
    1. If it does not load, navigate to in your web browser.
  3. Select whether you want to join the UO Secure network or the Eduroam network to proceed.
  4. Select whether you want to connect to the network with an Android phone or tablet, an Apple TV, or any other wireless device (computers, iOS devices, etc.)
  5. Once the file has downloaded (to your system’s downloads folder), open the file, then authenticate with your Duck ID and password then click Next to finish the process.

Note: The authentication will last until your password needs to be updated which is about every six months.
