On Friday, January 3rd the entire campus was switched to the new WiFi network. The WiFi network broadcasts two network names, eduroam and AmherstGuest.
Members of the Amherst College community should use eduroam to connect their computers, phones, and tablets. Remember that your username on eduroam is your Amherst email address!
Visitors to campus should connect to AmherstGuest, launch a browser, and follow the instructions to create an Amherst networking account.
Wireless devices such as game consoles and streaming devices also use the AmherstGuest WiFi network. First, however, such devices must be enrolled on the network.
Please contact us at AskIT@amherst.edu, if you have any questions.
Important Note: We are aware of an issue with Xfinity on campus and are working to resolve it as soon as possible. If you have any questions about the new WiFi network or would like to report an issue, please contact us at AskIT@amherst.edu.

Please review the detailed schedule of the network migration for each building on campus. This schedule is subject to change, so please stay tuned to the Daily Mammoth, email updates, and this website.
