Wireless Networks

Important changes to wireless networks at St. Olaf

  • St. Olaf has deployed the eduroam wireless network. This replaces the ‘St. Olaf’ wireless network which will be phased out in early October. St. Olaf users should use the eduroam wireless network – see below for instructions to connect.
  • Game consoles and older mobile devices that do not support eduroam should connect to the ‘St. Olaf Guest’ wireless network. You no longer need to register game consoles to work on the St. Olaf network.
  • Guests of the college can connect to the ‘St. Olaf Guest’ wireless network.
  • The ‘St. Olaf (Unencrypted)’ wireless network has been removed.

Connecting to eduroam

St. Olaf users are strongly encouraged to use the eduroam’ wireless network. This wireless network is secured, encrypted and provides access to the Internet and all St. Olaf computing resources.

Click on a link below to download an installer (the eduroam Configuration Assistant Tool) which will configure your computer or mobile device for eduroam. 

Important! When asked for your username, please enter your full St. Olaf email address (username@stolaf.edu)


If you are a guest of the college coming from other eduroam participating institutions, your computer should automatically connect to the ‘eduroam’ wireless network. If prompted, use your home institution’s credentials to connect to eduroam. Please make sure you configure and test your connection at your home institution before visiting.

For all other guests and visitors, please connect to the ‘St. Olaf Guest’ wireless network.
