RedRover *Secure* was retired on July 15, 2014 so that Cornell can focus on providing a single high-value Wi-Fi Internet network.
Cornell's unencrypted (non-secure) Wi-Fi service, RedRover, is still available. However, we highly recommend using eduroam's secure network for your Wi-Fi needs.

Get Online

Connect to eduroam, Cornell's secure Wi-Fi network, to access the Internet, keep everything you do online private, and use your eduroam account at other eduroam schools.

  1. Select the eduroam Wi-Fi network.
  2. Sign in with your NetID@Cornell.edu and NetID password.
  3. Accept the network-access.it.cornell.edu certificate and you are online.
    If you need detailed instructions (including phones and iPads), see the How To page.
