NAU Secure Network Access

The NAU network is a secure network available to faculty, staff, and students with an NAU userID and Password.  This network uses the WPA2 Enterprise security protocol to automatically encrypt all data traveling on the Wireless network. There is no agreement page presented to users of NAU.  Once devices are connected and logged in, they have full access to NAU network resources and will reconnect automatically each time the NAU network is in range, providing a secure, convenient Wireless connection.

NAU-Guest Network Access

NAU-Guest is available to all NAU guests and provides basic access to Internet resources only. Upon connecting to NAU-Guest users will be prompted to read and agree to our acceptable use policy.  In an effort to be as accessible to guests as possible, the public network does not provide any built-in encryption.  If you use this network for sensitive work, or need to access resources normally blocked by the guest policy, we strongly recommend starting an encrypted VPN session to secure your network traffic.  This will give you access to the broader NAU network. Also, please understand that access to the Internet via NAU-Guest has no parental-type control or filtering. NAU does not restrict content in that manner.
