New guest wireless network 'psu-guest' to replace 'attwifi'

November 19, 2019

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — A new wireless network called “psu-guest” will be available at all campus locations on Nov. 26 and will offer all visitors a more reliable Penn State-provided wireless connection. 

By the end of the year, this new network will replace the “attwifi” network currently used by University guests across every Penn State campus. While “attwifi” will be available until it is decommissioned on Jan. 2, 2020, visitors should connect to “psu-guest” when searching for a connection on campus. 

Penn State IT piloted “psu-guest” alongside “attwifi” in all Penn State residence halls, the Penn Stater Hotel and the Nittany Lion Inn, and everywhere at Penn State Harrisburg and Great Valley. It will be accessible via any device’s wireless networks menu. After selecting “psu-guest” visitors only need to click “get connected” once their browsers prompt them.
