Connecting to Wi-Fi

August 4, 2021

In an effort to update and expand access, the seminary's Wi-Fi network has changed and is now faster and more secure! When you return to campus, you should connect to the eduroam network, instead of the old Northwestern network (expiring December 20).

To connect, follow these instructions.

  1. Choose eduroam from the list of wireless networks on your device and select Connect.
  2. Enter your Northwestern NetID credentials to log in. Your username will be your NetID (e.g., abc1234) along with (i.e., Your password will be the same as your existing NetID password.

Questions or Issues?

If you cannot remember your NetID, or if you have other questions/concerns, please contact us at or 847.866.3909.

Please note, the wireless networks are managed by Northwestern, and if you have issues or questions, you can contact Northwestern's IT department directly at or 847.491.4357. You can also contact our IT department at or 847.866.3928, and they may be able to help.

Northwestern Guest Network

While you can also connect to the Northwestern Guest network, please know that the speeds are much slower, and this connection will require you to periodically recertify to connect. This network is primarily for guests without a NetID.

Expanded Access

The seminary has installed three new Wi-Fi access points in the library, which drastically improve connectivity on the lower level. You should notice the difference when you are browsing the shelves or studying in a carrel.

Also, this wireless network change expands access to wireless networks on other campuses throughout the world. If you visit another school with the eduroam network, you will likely be able to connect to it in the same way.
