Guests to Brown's campus can connect to the Brown-Guest wireless network without any prior account creation by Brown staff. However, if you are hosting a conference or other event, we recommend creating Guest accounts to provide your visitors more bandwidth and services.
Each residence room has one wired port per resident which provides both campus and Internet access. Devices on the residence hall wired network must be registered via My Connection upon connecting for the first time.
Brown University's Virtual Private Network (VPN) allows access to programs and services exclusive to users on the Brown on-campus network from off campus. A VPN connection provides a Brown IP (Internet Protocol) address at a remote location, providing the benefits of being on the Brown network.
Brown-Secure is the recommended wireless network for anyone with a Brown username and password. It is recommended over Brown_EZ as it provides for a better user experience and a higher level of security and protection of your data.
