2. Enter your University username and password and most devices (phones, tablets, laptops) will connect automatically. Some devices require further steps to connect for the first time. For detailed instructions, select the appropriate option on the right of this page.

Have a Windows 7, 8 or 10 laptop? We also have a quick and easy tool that automatically runs through the steps to configure your laptop for DU Wireless - to use it just click here select 'Run' and follow the instructions. There's also an Eduroam version - see the link on the right.
