Reconnecting to UO Secure after summer wireless network change

In June 2016, Information Services made a change to the UO Secure wireless network. UO Secure is the secure wireless network intended for daily use by UO students, faculty, and staff.
If you're new to campus to just returning, and you're having trouble connecting your computer, smartphone or tablet to Wi-Fi, you may need to re-enter your username and password or trust a new certificate. After doing that, you should be able to connect to UO Secure.
However, if you've gotten an "authentication failed" error, you should remove the existing UO Secure profile from your device. You can use the "uowireless" network to view the instructions here:
After deleting the profile, go to and follow the steps to update your device's wireless configuration for UO Secure.
The June change, which was part of a larger university network streamlining project, also affects the eduroam network, which provides convenient wireless access for visitors from other campuses.
