Learn about the different networks available at UB, and when you

UB Secure is the recommended, secure access choice for UB's
campus network. Your UBITName and password and all data transmitted
from your device to the wireless access point (the campus network)
UB Wireless is an on-campus non-secure choice.
You should only connect to UB Wireless when you need to connect to
the UB Network and you cannot configure your device for UB
You must authenticate with your UBITName and password after
connecting when you browse or connect to a new location.
The UB Guest Wi-Fi service is for UB guests and visitors only.
Guests and visitors can access the network by logging in with any
email address. Wi-Fi service is limited and unprotected.
UB Gaming is a special Wi-Fi service to connect gaming consoles
and media devices that can't use UB Secure because the device can't
do web authentication or 802.1x protocols. UB Gaming is available
campus wide but used primarily within UB's Residence Halls and
Apartments. Just like UB Secure, UB Gaming transmissions to
the campus network are encrypted. There are special instructions
for connecting to UB Gaming that require knowing the MAC address of
your gaming or media device.

who have the Cisco Unified Wireless IP Phone 7925G. UB_Voice
connects those telephones to the campus VoIP telephone system.
ResNet allows you to connect to the UB Network from within UB
residence halls and campus apartments using a wired Ethernet
OpenPort is an access method at UB to connect to the UB Network
using publicly accessible network jacks and Ethernet cabling.
