Wireless Setup for Laptops

  • If you know your network username and password, and you have a properly updated PC or laptop, you can use these links to set up the IUP Wireless Network.

    The IUP Wireless Network is available in all classroom buildings, all suite-style residence halls, Stapleton Library, the Hadley Union Building, and the Oak Grove.

  • Connecting to IUP wireless is done through a streamlined certificate-based system. The system, which utilizes the XpressConnect application, allows students, staff, and faculty to establish their connection based on a certificate that lasts five years from the date of issue.

    Please note: You can choose not to go through iconnect.iup.edu to register your device. The device will still function on the network correctly but will lack the needed certificates to keep you registered when your password expires. When your password expires, all devices not registered through iconnect will continue to hold onto your password. This hold on your device can lead to you being locked out of the network until the devices are updated with the correct network password.
