UICOMP-Guest Wireless Network Changes

We are writing to inform you that changes are coming to the UICOMP-Guest wireless network. This is targeted for release on Wednesday, August 14, 2017 and will replace University of Illinois College of Medicine in Peoria’s current unsecured open UICOMP-Guest wireless network. The new system will be designated for guests of the University and will require a username and password to connect to. The username and password can be acquired at the front desk or at the CIS department weekly. We encourage students, faculty and staff to use our secure wireless. For more information, see our Connecting to Wireless guides.
