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 are the method to logging on to the 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 address bar, enter
  2. The Wireless Connection Utility will load. Check the box to accept the terms of the End-User License Agreement, then click Start to proceed.
  3. Select which device to authenticate–either the device you are on or an Apple TV.
    1. You may have to select your operating system from the list. Select your operating system to proceed.
  4. From here, select either the UO Secure or Eduroam network depending upon which network the user wishes to join.
  5. On the next page, click to install the network profile then use your DuckID and password to authenticate.

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