Onboarding is here!

What is onboarding? Onboarding is a simplified process of connecting your devices to our WiFi environment.


Simplified process regardless of device

  • Self-Service
  • Certificate based security
  • Certificate lifespan:

As part of the onboarding process, a certificate is installed on your device. This means you don’t need to re-enter your account information all the time. The certificates have a lifespan and can change without notice.

Below are the current lifespans for all users:

  • Certificates will expire 1 year after issued
  • If you onboard January 1, 2020 the certificate expires January 1, 2021

Visit wifi and complete the onboarding process to get a new certificate.
