WFUguest

An open wireless network for our campus guests who want quick and easy access to the Internet. WFUguest does not require a sponsor or a password. This option is not intended for use by our faculty, staff, and students because access to internal campus network resources is restricted and moderate bandwidth limitations are in place for this network.

  • Deacon Tower (BB&T Field)
  • Tennis Center
  • Brookstown Inn

Our faculty, staff and students can take advantage of this service by using their Wake Forest credentials when visiting other eduroam participating institutions.

IQGuest

An open wireless network for Wake Downtown guests who want quick and easy access to the Internet. IQGuest does not require a sponsor or a password. This option is not intended for use by our faculty, staff and students because access to internal campus network resources is restricted and moderate bandwidth limitations are in place for this network.

Wired Network

Wired networking jacks are available across campus in many classrooms and conference rooms, and all residence halls.
