About MSU Denver's Wireless Network (SSID MetroState)

MSU Denver's Information Technology Services (ITS) provides a fast and secure encrypted wireless network for all current students, faculty, and staff members of the University. The wireless network can be accessed by MSU Denver members on any mobile device, tablet, or laptop by using their Network ID (your e-mail address before "@msudenver.edu").

The MetroState wireless network also offers an array of functionality which provides a flexible, yet secure environment, allowing students, faculty, and staff to be more mobile and preventing them from experiencing the restrictions of computing where wireless services are weakly covered and are inconsistent.
