UCR campus provides several networks for wireless internet access on mobile devices:

  • UCRWPA 
    This is UCR's preferred secure and reliable wireless network for faculty, staff, and students. It requires a valid Net ID to login and is run by campus Computing & Communications.
  • Eduroam
    Eduroam (education roaming) is a secure wireless access service developed for the international research and education community. Eduroam allows students, researchers, faculty, and staff from UCR with a valid Net ID to obtain Internet connectivity across campus and when visiting other participating institutions.
  • Mobilenet
    Mobilenet is an open and non-encrypted wireless network that uses a browser-based captive portal to authenticate users. It is less secure than UCRWPA or Eduroam. 
  • LibraryGuest
    If you are a visitor in the library and do not have a UCR NetID and Password, select this network.  You can also use this network if you are having trouble connecting to the other networks. It only works in the library.
