Secure wireless is available at all Vancouver Island University campuses using either the viu-secure or s-wisp wireless connections.

The eduroam (education roaming) network is a world-wide roaming service that allows students, faculty, and staff access to wireless services at cooperating universities without obtaining a guest account. Users visiting participating institutions can login to the eduroam wireless network using the same credentials they would at their home institutions.
If you are not a VIU student or employee, and require internet access while visiting VIU, we are pleased to offer our viu-guest wireless network.
