UCM CatNet is the recommended wireless network on campus. It's authenticated, encrypted, and available from all academic and residential buildings.

eduroam is run by a separate company that provides wireless connection to academic institutions. UC Merced students can use eduroam on our campus and at any other participating institution.

UCM Guest does not require a UCMNetID to access. It's unencrypted and therefore not recommended for students, faculty, or staff.
