Wireless Network

WKU provides wireless network access in all academic, administrative, and residential buildings across campus. We are also in the process of expanding coverage to common outdoor areas around the University. Please check the Wireless Coverage page to see currently available locations.

Wireless network access is available to WKU students, faculty, staff, and guests of the University. Please select the “Getting Connected” link below for more information about this process, the planned enhancements, and accessing the wireless network.

Other areas of this site are intended to provide the WKU community with the information necessary to use the WKU Wireless Network and wireless networking in general. Please follow the links below for more information on a particular topic.
