Denver Center at Lowry – Current Students Information

The UNC Denver Center at Lowry is located in East Denver on the site of the former Lowry Air Force Base.

Student WiFi Directions

Devices vary in which fields they require and in what order, but the bullets below should cover most device processes (you may not require all of these items):

  • If you are on a mobile device, first turn on Airplane Mode (this will ensure that the user registration page will be displayed once you connect).
  • Make sure WiFi is turned on, search for available networks and select: UNC-Student
  • Keycode/Password/Security Key:  UNCStudent (capitalization does matter; this is needed only the 1st time you use each device at a UNC campus or center).
  • Ignore any notification that says "WiFi has no internet access."
  • Open your browser and go to any web page to prompt the User Registration page if you are on a computer. If you are on a mobile device, you may need to go to http://www.unco.edu or
  • Read the UNC Computing Acceptable Use Procedure, then hit the "Accept" button.
  • Username and password are your full UNC Student username (Bearmail address) and your password.
  • If you input your credentials correctly, you will receive a confirmation page and then the network will connect (this may take a few moments).
  • Turn of Airplane mode if you turned it on for this process.

If you have trouble connecting, visit the UNC Wireless Networks help page (you may need to log-in with your Ursa credentials) or call 970-351-4357 for assistance.
