Wireless Access

Wireless Networks at Boise State

eduroam Wireless Networking at Boise State

All students, faculty and staff should use the Boise State eduroam wireless network.

Eduroam is an encrypted, secure wireless network requiring you to authenticate once with your Boise State username and password. The eduroam network is also used for BroncoPrint wireless printing.

In addition to accessing University services, eduroam allows you to access wireless networks at other universities and colleges who also use eduroam.

Other Wireless Options


The Bronco-Guest wireless network is designed to allow open access to internet resources for seven days at a time. Bronco-Guest does not require a username or password; therefore it is an unsecured network.

The Bronco-Guest network is intended for friends and guests of Boise State. Because this network is unsecured, we recommend Boise State students, faculty and staff use the eduroam wireless network (see above).

Anyone can access Bronco-Guest, but we recommend the service never be used when sensitive, personal and/or financial data are transmitted as there always exists the possibility unscrupulous people on the network may employ malicious tools or methods to capture such information.
