Faculty/Staff 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):

  • Make sure WiFi is turned on, search for available networks and select: UNC-Enterprise
  • If your device asks you to select a security type, choose "PEAP" as the EAP method, and "MSCHAPV2" as the Phase 2 authentication. 
  • If your device has a field for CA certificate, select "Do not validate" or "unspecified."
  • Identity/Username and password are same as your Ursa credentials [first.last and Ursa password]. If your device has a field for "anonymous identity," leave it blank.
  • If you are prompted to accept a security certificate, click what would be the "yes" answer: Accept / Connect / Trust / etc.

If you have trouble connecting, or wish to set Enterprise as an established network on your personal Windows machine while at the center or on campus, visit the UNC Wireless Networks help page (you may need to log-in with your Ursa credentials) or call 970-351-4357 for assistance.

Computer Lab and Printing

  • Our computer lab is available whenever the center is open, if it is not reserved by a course (rare occurrences).
  • Food and drink are not allowed in the lab. You may have food & drink in the regular classrooms.
  • All the printing is done through the BearPrint printing system, same as the main campus. For assistance, check the binder in your computer lab. When printing, it will ask for your Ursa username and password.
  • Every August, an $8 credit is put on your account for the academic year. If more money is needed, you can add funds to your account in the Financial/Billing section in Ursa. If a billing discrepancy occurs, please contact Technical Support.
