The WU-Aux wireless network is an encrypted network for game systems, smart TVs, and other devices that can't use the main registration system. It is available in Residential Living dorms and spaces, and you must have a Washburn account to use it.

Some smart TVs and game consoles can do normal registration and get on WU-Secure. If yours can connect, please register your device with WU-Secure. If not, you can still register on WU-Aux by accessing the registration portal, wifi.washburn.edu, from any Internet-connected computer, tablet, or phone.

Visitors to campus who do not have a Washburn account can register on the WU-Visitor network. WU-Visitor uses the same encryption, but its access is limited to five days at a time and it allows access only to the Internet and public systems. 

If you have trouble registering for or using the Washburn secure wireless networks, contact ITS User Services at (785) 670-3000.

You will need to have Duo setup to be able to be able to login to wifi.washburn.edu Off-Campus. View Duo Registration Instructions for more information.
