OSU is in the process of disabling the OSU_Access network. As of September 4, it has been disabled in all campus housing buildings. Customers should connect their computers to Eduroam or OSU_Secure instead.
However, students who live in OSU housing have reported that they are not able to connect some consumer products (such as Rokus, smart home assistants and some gaming consoles) to Eduroam or OSU_Secure because the devices do not support WPA2 Enterprise.
To allow students to connect consumer devices, the OSU_Unsecured network was implemented on 9/20/2018.
The OSU_Unsecured network is only available in student housing buildings. It does not allow access to any OSU resources (also cannot access VPN). Computers should be connected to Eduroam or OSU_Secure, and not OSU_Unsecured.
