Using UMMS Wireless

Using UMMS Wireless

The Information Technology department offers wireless connections on two wireless networks. (UMMS & UMASSMED-GUEST)

 The UMMS wireless network is intended to provide students, faculty and staff direct access to school resources using the network login credentials. UMMS is recommended as it supports the industry’s highest level of encryption to protect sensitive data. The UMASSMED-GUEST wireless network provides non-encrypted access to the internet for guests of the Medical School.

 If you require assistance, please contact the Information Technology HelpDesk @ (508) 856-8643.

eduroam

UMassMed is now a participating institution in the EDUROAM project. Our participation allows visitors from other participating schools and institutions to use their own (participating school/institution) credentials to log in securely to the EDUROAM Wireless SSID.  Likewise, if a UMMS student/researcher/professor is at another university that has EDUROAM, they can log in with their own umassmed.edu ID.

Visit http://www.umassmed.edu/it/who-we-are/cloud9/wireless for more details on how eduroam works.

Can anybody connect to the UMASS Medical School wireless network?

Only registered users with a UMASSMED or UMMHC account have the ability to connect to the UMMS wireless network.
