New PHD Information

Technology Orientation

Network Access


Wireless Access

eduroam provides the highest level of security and is the recommended network. This also works while visiting other eduroam-enabled universities. A one-time authentication is required by following the format: 


Password: Your UCLA Logon password

UCLA_WiFi requires a log in with your UCLA Logon ID and password.

UCLA_WEB does not require a log in and is available to campus visitors and guests. This option provides the least amount of security.


Wired Access

Wired computers at UCLA Anderson require Network Admission Control (NAC) in order to sign on. NAC is a security client that protects all computers on the Anderson intranet from security threats. With NAC, computers that are not authorized or do not meet safe computing standards are prevented from infecting other computers.
