Changes in usage of UTokyo Wi-Fi due to renewal

Table of Contents

The University of Tokyo is upgrading its network environment to improve the infrastructure for education and research activities. As a part of this effort, we have decided to update and enhance the university-wide wireless LAN service. Consequently, the usage of UTokyo Wi-Fi will be changed as follows starting in January 2023. If you are currently using UTokyo Wi-Fi, please check the following information as you will need to take necessary measures on your own in order to continue using the UTokyo Wi-Fi.

Please note that more information on UTokyo Wi-Fi is available on the UTokyo Wi-Fi page of the portal site “utelecon”, so please refer to that page if necessary.

The network name (SSID) for UTokyo Wi-Fi will change to 0000UTokyo

The network name (SSID) for the UTokyo Wi-Fi will change from UTokyo-WiFi to 0000UTokyo.

You can connect to the new network 0000UTokyo using your existing UTokyo Wi-Fi account.

Where to connect during the transition period

Since the updating process will take place following different schedules for each device on campus from FY2022 to FY2023, the network name (SSID) with which you can connect to the UTokyo Wi-Fi will differ from place to place during the transition period. Our aim is to try and update UTokyo Wi-Fi as quickly as possible so that 0000UTokyo can be used throughout the campus. Therefore, connecting to 0000UTokyo will basically be the smoothest way to use UTokyo Wi-Fi.

We believe there will be three possible scenarios.

The procedure for issuing UTokyo Wi-Fi accounts will change

Starting from January 31, 2023, the procedure for issuing out a UTokyo Wi-Fi account will change as follows. Please note that your existing account is still available, so there is no need to create a new account for now.

We continue to implement the UTokyo Wi-Fi security measures.
