Wifi and Internet Access

EPSS-NET is the preferred wireless network for EPSS department members.  This network uses a Pre-Shared Key (PSK) for authentication, you can email to obtain this passphrase.

For visiting scholars and researchers, We offer two other networks which are available throughout the Geology building and Slichter Hall. You can read more about Eduroam here.

“PhySciOpen” is an open (unauthenticated) network, which is available as a convenience for visitors and students, however, it should not be used for activities involving sensitive data. EPSS IT recommends you do not use this network for any critical activities, such as teaching or conducting meetings.

If you are working in an area with consistently weak wireless reception, please email the helpdesk so we can evaluate and remedy the situation.

Most offices and labs in Geology and Slichter halls have cat5e ethernet jacks which will supply faster speeds than wireless. In most cases, the ports need to be activated on the EPSS network to function properly. If you would like to have network ports in your office or lab activated, please email or stop by Geology 4687.
