Dupré Library is pleased to provide the next generation University wireless network (UWIN) with the support of UL Information and Media Networks. The wireless Internet connections located in the library are to be used by UL students, faculty, and staff only. Physical Internet connections are located on the second floor hallway of the library. You must configure your computer with a wireless card or built-in wireless to access and register with the University's official wireless network (UWIN). When connecting to the wireless network in DUPRE LIBRARY, please connect to UWIN and continue as usual.

Accessing UWIN
Information on connecting a device to the network is found at the IT Help Desk's web page, Connecting to UWIN. All computer users who wish to use the UL network must have a UCS account (CLID and Password). A UL Lafayette faculty or staff member sponsoring a guest may be granted short-term special guest access by contacting University Information Networks at (337)482-6418, or by emailing them at solutionsdesk@louisiana.edu. Users having difficulties accessing UWIN may need to consult the campus IT Help Desk at 337-482-HELP (4357) or by emailing them at ithelp@louisiana.edu.

Wireless Passphrase
In order to support the academic mission of the university and enhance security, a passphrase (security key) is now required to access the UWIN, ResNet networks and other named university networks. The passphrase may be obtained by clicking on a link within the web page, Connecting to UWIN.
Library patrons are expected to comply with the university's published policies on the use of computers and network resources. They may be viewed within the university's technology policies pages.
