Wifi at Tufts

Tufts provides three different wireless networks:

Tufts_Secure

  • Tufts_Secure is the preferred network for all members of the Tufts community. It provides an encrypted connection with added security protections.
  • To access Tufts_Secure, choose the network and sign in with your Tufts Username and Password. Please note that you may be prompted to log in each time you connect from a new location.

Tufts_Guest

  • Tufts_Guest is the network for visitors to the Tufts campuses. The network provides short-term, hot-spot style access to the internet.
  • To access Tufts_Guest, choose the network and follow the prompts to connect.

Tufts_Wireless

  • As an end user, you usually will not be using Tufts_Wireless. Tufts_Wireless is used for TVs, printers, and other internet-enabled devices that don’t have a built-in web browser.
  • Tufts_Wireless allows you to register up to 10 devices and access the network from any location on the Tufts campuses.
  • To access Tufts_Wireless, choose the network and open a web browser to connect to the device registration page. You can also reach the page by manually entering the address: https://device-registration-prod-02.it.tufts.edu/login/aup. Use the device registration page from a connected device to register gaming consoles, TVs, and any other internet-enabled device that doesn’t have a built-in web browser.

To connect to Tufts_Secure on an Android device, use the following configuration.
