UNCA_PSK (Alternative Access)

UNCA_PSK is the alternative access wireless network on the UNC Asheville campus, created for older devices that do not support the advanced security features required to connect to eduroam.

For devices that do not support advanced network encryption – such as older computers and gaming consoles – the UNCA_PSK network provides less secure, lower-priority connectivity.

Connecting to the UNCA_PSK network requires registration of your device's MAC Address. You will need to obtain the MAC Address before beginning the setup process to receive access.

 The UNCA_PSK network should only be used if your device does not support secure EAP-TLS connections, or does not have a web browser capable of completing the enrollment process.
