Connect to WiFi - with your StarID (Students, Faculty, Staff)

StarLan will be discontinued as of 5/31/21. Please use eduroam instead.

Students and employees should connect their personal devices to eduroam, which​​ is an international service for users in higher education. It provides students, faculty, and staff easy and secure network access when visiting the Normandale campus or any participating campus.

Connecting to eduroam

  1. On your device, select eduroam from the list of available WiFi networks.
  2. You will be prompted to sign into the network. Enter your eduroam credentials. Your password is your StarID password.

If your device asks for more information, use the following settings:

  • Security: 802.1x EAP / WPA2 Enterprise
  • EAP Method: TTLS (Tunneled TLS)
  • Phase-2 (Inner) Authentication: PAP or GTC
  • Proxy Settings: none
  • IP Settings: DHCP
  • CA Certificate: Use System Certificates (no CA certificate required)
