Connect securely to the campus network (students)

To connect to the Wake Forest wireless campus network while on campus, view the available networks and select ‘WFUwireless’. 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 download Cisco AnyConnect to use while you are off campus and not on a WFU network. Cisco AnyConnect allows your computer to connect to a Virtual Private Network (VPN), which secures your connection, ensuring your data 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.

To download Cisco AnyConnect to the computer that you will be using while attending Wake Forest University, go to software @ WFU and follow the instructions.


Use Wake Forest University’s Wi-Fi authentication at any eduroam hotspot in the world and join instantly and securely.
