Using URMC Wireless

The URMC wireless networks are intended to provide students, faculty and staff direct access to school resources using the industry standard 802.1X authentication and encryption.

We have two Wireless Networks:

  • UR_MCwireless is for faculty, staff, students and contractors who have established URMC network accounts.
  • UR_MCguest is for patients, families and visitors.

Faculty, Staff, Students and Contractors: UR_MCwireless

Only faculty, staff, students and contractors with a URMC Domain account (user name and password used to log into email) can access the URMC secure network wirelessly at the Medical Center campus (including Strong Memorial), Highland Hospital and most URMC Off Site Locations. Once on the network, you will be able to connect to:

  • URMC email
  • Network shared drives
  • Internet
  • URMC Intranet
  • Network Applications (eRecord, Flowcast, etc.)

Most URMC computers are automatically configured to link to the UR_MCwireless network. However, some computers will not automatically link up to the wireless network, and must be individually configured. Click on the link for configuration instructions (select your computer's operating system).

Note: Some applications may experience problems on the wireless network and are more suited for wired access. The wireless network should not be used as a replacement for hard-wired ports.

Patients, Families and Guests: UR_MCguest

Patients, families and their guests can access our guest wireless networks at Strong Memorial and Highland hospitals, and the Medical Center campus. Most visitors are able to connect to the wireless network without any assistance.
