Wi-Fi at NAU
Most NAU Flagstaff campus buildings and statewide locations have wireless network access provided by ITS. We are constantly working to provide wireless access by increasing the number of access points and improving connectivity while moving between buildings.
The NAU network is a secure network available to faculty, staff, and students with an NAU userID and Password.
The NAU Guest network is available to all NAU guests and provides basic access to Internet resources only.
Gaming and Media Devices
NAU Guest should also be used for devices that cannot connect to NAU Wi-Fi, which includes many media and gaming devices.
