What is PAWS?
The Personal Access Wireless System, better known as PAWS, is the wireless gateway to the Internet and University of Georgia networking resources. It provides students, faculty, and staff unfettered access from much of the campus and downtown Athens.
How Do I Access PAWS?
Most wireless devices will be able to auto-detect the PAWS network. It will display as PAWS or UGA in your list of available wireless networks.
In order to access PAWS, you will need a valid University of Georgia MyID and password. If you are eligible for a MyID and have not obtained one, go here from a non-wireless connection. If you are a visitor to UGA and ineligible for a MyID, please contact the EITS Help Desk for assistance.
For an encrypted connection on the PAWS network, please see the PAWS Secure documentation.
