Wireless Networks @ MSU Denver
May 29, 2013
As a MSU Denver student, faculty, or staff, you have the choice between MetroState or Auraria Campus wireless network.
What are the differences between Auraria Wireless and MetroState?
|Campus Wireless Options||Who/What Can Use:||Security||MSUDenver Software Access|
|Auraria Campus||Anyone/Any Device||Not Encrypted*||Outlook Web Access|
|Metro State||Faculty, staff, Students/Any Device||Encrypted||Outlook|
The MetroState wireless network requires authentication using an Admin or Academia username and password. Once authenticated, you can use applications such as Outlook. If you wish to connect to email on your phone, mobile devices, or tablets, you will need to connect to MetroState wireless. You do not need to install any software on your device to access this network.
The Auraria Campus network serves all three institutions and is maintained by AHEC, CCD, UCD, and MSU Denver. It does not require a login to access the Internet. The Auraria Campus network does not authenticate individual users and therefore Internet connectivity is limited to basic webpages. Applications such as Microsoft Outlook, email clients on mobile devices or tablets will have limited functionality on Auraria Campus.
Certain areas of the campus may also see a Test_MSUDenverSecure wireless network. This test network is in the development phase, and only available to pilot programs.
