Using the UAB WiFi Network
UAB IT provides a WiFi network in support of the academic, research, and administrative work of the UAB community. This WiFi network serves classrooms, common areas, green spaces, and many other popular areas around campus.
To use this network, you must have a device with a WiFi network adapter. Two WiFi networks are available as of July 31, 2014:
- UABStartHere: All users will begin by connecting to this network. Upon opening a web browswer, the user will automatically be directed to a Web page where they can choose a list of options. UAB students, employees and faculty members will have the option to either configure their WiFi device using QuickConnect or log on to the open UABStartHere network. Guests will have the option to register and log on to UABStartHere. Click here for instructions for logging in to UABStartHere as a guest.
- UABSecure: This secure network is the preferred network for UAB students, employees and faculty members. Users must have a valid BlazerID and password, and have their WiFi device properly configured for this network. Instructions for configuring a WiFi device for UABSecure are listed below.
