While on campus, you will see two wireless networks you can connect to: 

  • CU Anschutz
  • CU Anschutz Guest

CU Anschutz Guest is a lower-security network that does not require credentials to log into. CU Anschutz is a higher-security network that only students, faculty, and staff have access to. To connect, select the CU Anschutz network and, when prompted, enter your university credentials (the same ones you use to log into Canvas and UCD Access).

If you have difficulty accessing the system after you have claimed your University account, you can find some simple troubleshooting instructions here​. If you are still unable to connect, contact the OIT Helpdesk at 303-724-4357 or email
