Connecting to UB Secure with a Chromebook

In order to connect your Chromebook to UB Secure, you must configure it properly.


Chromebooks are designed for home use, not institutional use. Use at UB has been inconsistent, with reports of dropped or weak connections due to suspected firmware issues. UB does not recommend using Chromebooks on campus, and Chromebooks do not meet UB's student hardware standards.

Configuring Chromebook

  1. Click on your Chromebook's Wi-Fi and select UB Secure.
  2. Choose the folliowing settings:
    • EAP method: PEAP
    • Phase 2 authentication: Automatic
    • Server CA certificate: Default
    • User certificate: none installed
    • Identity: Enter your UBITName
    • Password: Enter your UBIT password
    • Anonymous identity: leave blank
  3. Click Connect.
