I will be a guest visiting EIU.  What do I need to know about your Wi-Fi?

Eastern Illinois University manages wireless access through an application called SafeConnect. This application helps to secure the EIU network from out-of-date or compromised devices. SafeConnect will make sure your computer is running a compatible and updated antivirus program.  Computers that do not meet these predefined requirements will be “quarantined” and users will be provided with instructions to update their system to the required configuration.

  1. Before coming to campus
    1. Your computer must have an antivirus program installed and running with up-to-date virus definitions.
    2. Your computer must have operating system updates enabled to automatically install.
    3. Upon your arrival to campus
      1. Connect to eiuwifi, as you would connect to any other wireless access
      2. Open a browser (Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Firefox, Safari)
      3. You will need to browse to a non-EIU website (Google, Amazon, eBay). You may need to try several pages before SafeConnect detects your device.
      4. You will be presented with a login page where you may choose to register as a guest.
        • Register as a guest

Follow the prompts to download, and install the SafeConnect application.  At this point, you are ready to enjoy wireless access. 

If you are unable to install SafeConnect or encounter any problems following these steps, please contact Campus Technology Support at 217-581-4357
