Welcome visitors and neighbors!

As a visitor to our campus, you may access free AT&T wireless Internet (Wi-Fi) service from your personal computer or other wireless enabled device at any participating visitor wireless location.

Penn State has entered into a contract with AT&T to enable open access wireless service on campus. Beginning June 26, 2014, the free service will be phased in and made available at the University Park campus with activation extended to other Penn State campus locations by the end of July. (Refer to the campus location activation schedule below.)

Connecting to AT&T Visitor Wireless

Campus visitors wishing to access free AT&T Visitor Wireless service should follow these simple steps:

  • Verify that you are in a wireless service area by checking your wireless signal for the network named "attwifi."
  • Connect to "attwifi" by configuring your wireless network settings to access "attwifi."
  • Launch a web browser and attempt to connect to any website.
  • Click "Get Connected" to agree to Terms of Service on the AT&T Wi-Fi connection page.
  • You're now connected to the Internet.


Paying by credit card or prepaid coupons?

The free AT&T service will be activated at each campus location during June and July. Until the free AT&T Wi-Fi service is activated, visitors to campus will have to pay AT&T via credit card or use prepaid coupon codes available through Software @ Penn State (https://software.psu.edu/penn-state-pp-wireless-code-7415.html).

Campus visitors wishing to access the for-fee AT&T Visitor Wireless service should follow these simple steps:

  1. Verify that you are in a wireless service area by checking your wireless signal for the network named "attwifi."
  2. Connect to "attwifi" by configuring your wireless network settings to access "attwifi."
  3. Launch a web browser and attempt to connect to any website.
  4. You will be given two purchasing options that best suit your needs:
    • Enter a credit card from the AT&T Wi-Fi web screen, or
    • Enter a prepaid coupon code.

Prepaid coupons

In addition to using a credit card and/or purchasing direct access from AT&T, prepaid coupons for Penn State"s Visitor Wireless service are available to order at no cost through Software @ Penn State (https://software.psu.edu/penn-state-pp-wireless-code-7415.html).

The prepaid coupon codes can only be ordered by departments and employees with valid Penn State Access Accounts. Penn State departments may order coupons and distribute them to their guests or at events for use while on campus. Current faculty and staff members with a valid Penn State Access Account may also order coupons for use by guests and vendors.

Coupon codes are distributed via email. Each code is good for one twenty-four-hour session that begins when the coupon is first activated. The session can be enabled no matter how many times the wireless device is powered off and on within the twenty-four-hour period. Sessions are only valid on the campus where the coupon is first used and where Penn State Visitor Wireless access is available. Prepaid coupons obtained elsewhere (e.g. McDonalds) won't work on the University's Visitor Wireless network.
