How do I forget the eduroam network after a password reset?

If you reset your SDSUid password, you must forget the eduroam network on your device and reconnect using the new password.  You are required to reset your SDSUid password once a year.  To find the latest instructions for forgetting a wireless network on your device do a simple internet search for “forget the network on ” and your operating system or device.  An example would be, “forget the network on windows 10”, or “forget the network on iphone”.

How do I connect to WiFi as an alumni or guest?

For graduating students your SDSUid is deleted one year from graduation.  For all others (including credential/certificate programs) 90 days after the final day of the last enrolled semester.  At this time SDSUids are not available for alumni, therefore, you must use the guest wireless network. Alumni and guests can connect to the wireless network using SDSU_Guest.  Guest wireless will require an SMS support device to connect to the network.  Your username and password will be sent as an SMS (text) message to the phone number you provide.  

SDSU guest wireless access is valid for 24 hours. After 24 hours you will be prompted to re-register. Guest wireless access is provided on an as-is basis. SDSU staff members are not able to troubleshoot guest connections or computers.
