Wireless Access on Campus

Unsecured Wireless Access
ATT unsecured wireless access is freely available on the IUPUI Campus.  It is recommended that all IUSM users connect to the IU Secure Wireless network. 

Connecting to IU Secure
To gain full Internet access for your device on the IU Secure network, you must register the device's MAC address at:  https://dhcp.iu.edu/  Otherwise, your device will not receive an IP address that allows a successful Internet connection.

Once your device’s MAC address has been registered, select the type of device here to continue.

Connecting to the VPN via IU Secure
Once your device is working with IU Secure, to access the Virtual Private Network (VPN) follow the directions for Junos Pulse, the preferred way to access the VPN on your mobile device.

If you have questions or need help connecting to IU Secure, contact University Information Technology Services (UITS) at: 317-274-4357.

Virtual Private Network (VPN) Off Campus
Accessing Medical Library Databases & Journal Subscriptions from Off Campus

Many resources at the Ruth Lilly Medical Library require authentication using your IUPUI username and password. Use of the VPN will allow off campus computers to recognize your computer as part of the network and allow you to access library resources.

Why use the VPN
Instructions for connecting to the VPN

If you have questions or need help connecting to IU VPN, contact University Information Technology Services (UITS) at: 317-274-4357. 

If you have trouble accessing Medical Library resources, such as journal subscriptions and databases, please contact:  medlref@iupui.edu or call 274-4876 M-F 8am-5pm. 

 



 

 

Do I have to use the VPN?

No.  However, when accessing Medical Library resources you may be asked to “authenticate” or log on to resources using your IUPUI username and password.  Use of the VPN will minimize the number of times you need to authenticate.
