WiFi in Parking Lots

Map of Parking Zones 2 and 4 showing WiFi availability

In support of social distancing, UH campus WiFi is now available in some parking lots. Signals are strongest in Zone 2 near the Student Services Center, near the Performing Arts Center (Theater), and in Zone 4 near Portable Buildings 8 and 9 (Music).

Parking lot WiFi access requires your UH credentials.

Connecting to the UH Wireless Passthrough

Are you frustrated with having to authenticate every time you connect your device to the UH Hilo WiFi? There is an easy way to automate your network signon: the UH Wireless Passthrough. By using the passthrough authentication service, the UH network will recognize your registered WiFi devices, and associate them with your account automatically. You can connect your phone, laptop, and tablet, and skip the login on each.

Registered devices are remembered for up to one year, and each UH email may have up to ten devices registered to their account. To add a device, it is necessary to locate your MAC Address, a string of 12 alphanumeric characters. Sometimes, MAC addresses are referred to as "WiFi Address" or "Physical Address", and often they appear with a colon (:) separating each pair of digits, such as this example: 00:22:15:CA:12:2E.

You are responsible for all devices registered under your account while they are connected to the UH network.
