Nearly 900 wireless access points on campus provide wireless in most university buildings. The university offers two wireless networks, UA Secure and UA Wireless. See the Wireless Map for wireless access locations.
UA Secure is the recommended network for UARK users, offering unrestricted and secure access to all web locations and services.
Troubleshooting Note: If you experience problems connecting to UA Secure, remove the connection profile from your device and follow the UA Secure Setup instructions.
UA Wireless does not require setup and is an unsecure guest network that allows access to the web, but blocks other services such as printing and mapping a drive. To access UA Wireless, choose it from the list of available networks, open your web browser, and enter any valid email address (e.g. email@example.com).
Routers are prohibited on campus because they can inhibit traffic flow through the network, impacting others who share the same local network.
Publically accessible network ports are located on floors three, four, five, and six of the Arkansas Union, as well as floors two, three, and four of Mullins Library. An ethernet cable (CAT-5) is needed. See the map of wired access locations in the Mullins Library lobby.

Contact your department's Tech Partner for setting up a new workstation for network access.
