Q. How can I set up on-campus wireless access for my laptop or mobile device?


Wireless at SAIS

SAIS has a secure wireless network named "hopkins" that is available to students, faculty, and staff. For instructions on accessing the Internet using the hopkins network, see this page or contact saishelp@jhu.edu.

Note: We advise all SAIS affiliates to use the hopkins network, rather than JHGuestnet, as the latter network does not give full access to JHU resources.


Hopkins is also a participating member of the eduroam (educational roaming) federation. Eduroam is a secure, worldwide network access service developed for the international research and education community. This is recommended for those who frequently travel to other institutions and require internet access. Once a device is configured for eduroam, it can be used at both the home and visiting institutions for free. At JHU, you will be provided the same level of access, using either the hopkins wireless network or eduroam network.  It is not necessary to make a distinction or prefer one over the other. Local members of eduroam include George Washington University, Georgetown University, and the University of Maryland.
