Available Wireless Networks

Colgate offers three wireless network identifiers (SSIDs): 

  • eduroam: (education roaming) is the secure, world-wide roaming access service developed for the international research and education community.  eduroam allows students, researchers and staff from participating institutions to obtain Internet connectivity across campus and when visiting other participating institutions by simply opening their laptop. For more information on eduroam, click here.
  • Colgate: designed to be used by Colgate students, faculty, and staff. Use password "wireless" when prompted.  You will then be redirected to a login screen where you need to enter your Colgate username and password.  When registration is complete, you will have internet access.  This is a one time registration that could take up to a minute.
  • ColgateGuest: for use by visitors of the university. Visitors may connect to the Internet using the ColgateGuest SSID. For more information on how to connect to ColgateGuest, click here.
