YUWireless

The wireless network at YU is called YUWireless. The username, between 4-8 characters depending on your legal name, is assigned by the University; the default password is the first letter of your last name followed by the last four digits of your Social Security Number. 

  • Mac/iPhone/Windows 10 (or later) users should simply select “YUWireless” at the outset and follow the prompts to enter username & password, select WPA2 Enterprise security and accept the certificate; Mac/iPhone users should not run “YUSetup.” 
  • For those using older versions Windows please contact the ITS Helpdesk

If you use a Windows-based laptop, you must have up-to-date anti-virus software running on the laptop. The University provides Symantec End Point software at no charge to students. Mac users are not required at this time to use an anti-virus product, but anti-virus software for the Mac is available at no charge from the University. To download the software, visit http://www.yu.edu/its/academic-computing/student-computing/antivirus/. Be sure to first uninstall all other anti-virus software before installing these Symantec products.

Step 1: FIRST-TIME USER? You are already registered!

     Accounts for new students are created automatically.

Step 2: Login

     USERNAME = barcode number on your ID.
     PASSWORD (default) = yulis - If you need us to reset it, email us at remote@yu.edu.

Step 3: Designate a new password for off-campus access.

     Enter yulis (lower case) as your old password.
