Wireless Access

UMD has several options for Wi-Fi service. This wireless setup tool can help you get connected to umd-secure and eduroam. You can even use the tool off-campus.

Wired Device Registration (Laptop/Desktop/Game Console/DVD Player/Smart TV/etc.)
For all students living in on-campus housing including the residence halls, South Campus Commons, University Courtyards, Graduate Hills and Gardens, and Fraternity Row (UMD Login required). More Information
  • To register a game console or device other than your computer, you will need its MAC/PHYSICAL address. It consists of 6 alphanumeric pairs separated by colons such as AA:BB:CC:11:22:33. (Get instructions for finding that address on some devices.)
  • Once you log in, you will be asked to read and accept the Acceptable Use Policy.
  • Select the Add button.
  • On the Add Device Form, you can enter a name for the device, the Device ID (this is where you want to input your MAC/PHYSICAL address of your game console, DVD player, Smart TV, etc.), and brief description of the device.
  • Devices may take up to 2 minutes to complete the registration.
  • If the device does not connect initially, unplug the device and plug it in again.
