Wireless Access

Students, Faculty and Staff, University System-wide can use their laptop computers in the Fogler Library with a wireless connection. K-12 students with I-books may connect, as well as students from Maine Maritime Academy and Unity College who have UMS accounts.

To connect in Fogler Library you will need an active UMS account. Every University of Maine at Orono student has a UMS account but the account needs to be activated. You can go to the IT Support Center at 17 Shibles Hall to get the code word you need to activate your account.

Once your account is activated, you will need to register your device. Simply open your favorite web browser and a page entitled: Network Host Registration will appear.  Log in with your USM Account and follow any instructions that appear on the screen.  You will then need to re-start your computer.

When your computer has re-booted, you will be ready to wirelessly connect to the Internet. For additional information and technical support, please visit Information Technologies or call the Help Desk at 207.581.2506.
