The University of Miami provides two wireless networks for the University community: SecureCanes (for faculty, staff, and students) and CanesGuest (for guests). Faculty, staff, and students are strongly encouraged to use SecureCanes, which has added security to protect the University’s sensitive academic, administrative, and medical records information. SecureCanes also provides encryption for wireless communications, making it safer to use wireless devices, such as laptops, smartphones, and tablets. CanesGuest is an open (does not require a password), unsecured, and unencrypted network.

All that is needed is a device with an 802.11a, 802.11g, 802.11n or 802.11ac wireless LAN card. You can surf the Internet, check email, and much more from anywhere within our wireless clouds at the Coral Gables, Medical, and RSMAS Campuses. For additional wireless information and support, please contact the UMIT Service Desk at (305) 284-6565 or help@miami.edu.
