Campus Wi-Fi

KU IT provides JAYHAWK wireless service for students and employees, and KUGuest or eduroam wireless service for campus visitors. You can connect to KU Wi-Fi networks indoors and in many outdoor spaces by selecting the appropriate network from the wireless list on your computer or mobile device.

KU Students, Faculty and Staff

The fast and secure JAYHAWK wireless network is available to all current KU faculty, staff and students. It requires students and employees to authenticate with their valid KU Online ID and password.

Internet service for students in campus housing is provided by an external partner. Visit our Housing Wi-Fi service page to learn more.

Visit the Smart Campus Map and select "KU Wireless Coverage" under "Outdoor Features" to Wi-Fi access points.

Campus Visitors

KUGUEST wireless service is available to all campus visitors. Visitors from eduroam member institutions can also access the eduroam network by logging in with their home institution username and password. Read more about eduroam below.

Sponsored Campus Visitors

The KU-Passport wireless service is available exclusively to select visitors sponsored or designated by a KU faculty or staff member. KU-Passport wireless network offers a faster connection than that provided by the KUGUEST wireless network because there is no shared bandwidth limit.

KU faculty and staff can request KU-Passport access for a campus visitor or group by contacting their departmental technology support staff. The technology support staff person should submit the request to the KU IT Customer Service Center. Campus visitors who need access to multiple online services, or who need access to KU wireless for more than a few weeks, should request a Sponsored Temporary Account. Examples include temporary workers, vendors, visiting scholar programs, summer workshops or community training programs.


The University of Kansas is a member of eduroam, a global consortium of thousands of institutions offering quick and easy access to local Wi-Fi networks in more than 100 countries.

Anyone with a KU Online ID can quickly and easily access the Internet via eduroam at U.S. locations and international locations. And, visitors from other eduroam institutions can connect to our Wi-Fi network using the login credentials from their home institutions.
