    Notes:

 Notes

  • K-State provides wireless network services for university students, faculty, staff, and guests. The three primary wireless networks are:
    • KSU Wireless — for current K-State faculty, staff, and students not living in K-State residence halls or Jardine Apartments.
    • KSU Housing — for current residents of K-State residence halls and Jardine Apartments.
    • KSU Guest — For temporary visitors to campus. This wireless network has no security.
  • Oftentimes, your device will be automatically connecting to networks your device remembers. Check your device to ensure that you aren't connecting to KSU Guest. The KSU Guest connection isn't equipped to take on the load of the entire campus. If you are connected to KSU Guest, configure your device to forget this network so it doesn't automatically connect to it.
