NOTICE: Wireless Network Changes for Legacy UMDNJ Users

Due to both the Healthcare Restructuring Act and new security standards, wireless networks that service the legacy UMDNJ community will be changing. Below you will find a description for each network within the environment. Some of the networks are already being broadcast and are available for use.

It is important to note that the replacement networks must be configured on all devices by 10/1/2013. At that time, the “UMD-WiFi-R” SSID will be decommissioned.

For your reference, here are the wireless networks that are changing (more details can be found by clicking the relevant links):

“UMD-WiFi-R” is replaced by:

  • "RUHealthSciences" for RBHS Employees (broadcast in all RBHS and UH locations)
  • "UHWireless for UH Employees (broadcast in all UH and RBHS locations)

“University” will be decommissioned once a secure, suitable, replacement network is provisioned.

UHGuest for UH patients and visitors (broadcast in UH)

RUWireless and RUWireless Secure are new (broadcast in all RBHS locations)

If you need assistance connecting to the new network(s), please open a Heat ticket by sending an email to or by calling 732-743-3200.
