The wireless network at NYU Law is part of NYU's campus-wide network. Most laptops and mobile devices can connect and authenticate to the 'nyu' network.

To connect, select the 'nyu' wifi network and enter your NYU NetID and password.  If prompted, click Connect or Continue to accept the security certificate.

Note: Some devices are not compatible with NYU's wireless network because they do not support WPA Enterprise or WPA2 Enterprise (e.g. Amazon Kindle, Google Chromecast).  Those devices should connect to the nyu-media wifi network instead.


To connect TVs, game consoles, and other media devices such as an AppleTV or Roku, or any other wireless device that does not support the regular 'nyu' wifi network in the NYU residence halls, refer to the below NYU IT knowledgebase article.

Printers are not supported on any NYU wifi network.

For more information about connecting your device to the NYU wireless network visit NYU IT's knowledgebase collection.


Troubleshooting Tips

Here are a few common solutions if you are having difficulties connecting to 'nyu'

  • Have you activated your NYU account? If not, please head to and complete the registration process (it can take between 2-4 hours after registering or changing an NYUHome password to successful authenticate to 'nyu').
  • Have you recently changed your NYUHome credentials? If so, you will need to enter your current password to connect.
  • The majority of wireless issues can be resolved by removing 'nyu' as a known network and adding it again with the proper configuration by following the instructions below.
