Virginia Tech does not have an open wireless network. Access to the wireless network requires a paid account; student accounts are paid through the student technology fee and faculty/staff accounts are paid through their office network lines.
The campus makes use of the academic Eduroam network, so if you have access to Eduroam through another campus, you can use that same login on our campus.
Guests may now access the university's wireless LAN through a sponsoring department. Guests may create an account online and request service. Invited guests of the library, such as job candidates or speakers, may have sponsored accounts set up for them in advance. Other patrons who are not affiliated with the university are welcome to use our public computers.
If you are a university guest, please contact the department you are visiting to arrange for Wireless LAN access during your stay. It is necessary to know your VT contact person when requesting wireless service online.
