Connect securely to the campus network for faculty, staff and students

Connecting securely on-campus

To connect to the Wake Forest wireless campus network, view the available networks and select ‘WFUwireless’ or ‘WFUwireless-legacy’. You will be prompted to enter your Wake Forest DeacNetID (username) and password in order to connect to the network.

Connecting securely off-campus

Information Systems recommends that you install Cisco AnyConnect to connect to our network while you are off campus. Cisco AnyConnect allows your computer to connect to a Virtual Private Network (VPN), ensuring your internet traffic is encrypted and secure. Cisco AnyConnect also allows you to use all services that are available to you when you are connected to a WFU network.
